I'm a self taught artist after being made redundant from a technical career after 44 years,
I have sailed in races across the Atlantic, The North Pacific, South China Sea, along the east coast of Australia and including a couple of Sydney to Hobarts. I love the ocean and beaches, and was a surfer during the 60's and up until I took up sailing in the late 70's. I have a love for the environment and I hope it shows in my works.
I always had an interest in art, but it was only after redundancy at age 60, that I was able to take short courses and begin my art education.
