A childhood in South Africa and early career work in Australian Zoological parks have had a marked effect on my art, and continue to inspire my paintings.

 The anatomical knowledge I gained from zoology and veterinary studies have helped me to express the characteristic motion and behaviour of my animal subjects.

The most recent work being historical scenes from a series of books written by the famous hunter turned conservationist, Jim Corbett, of his exploits in British Colonial Northern India.

In 2017 further travels to Zambia extended my African wildlife studies, when I acted as guide for the director of HSI Australia to research conservation projects.

2018 brought about my focusing on Water Colour as a favoured medium for travelling and painting. A return, two Month visit to the Cook Islands, allowed me to break from my usual subject matter and concentrate on working with the medium of watercolour to portray the beauty of the Cook Islands and its people.
