Hills and Vines
I am fortunate to live and work in the Adelaide Hills town of Mt Barker with my wife Jo and our three children. We moved to Mt Barker from Port Pirie in 2000 and since arriving in the Hills, I have found a constant source of inspiration for my paintings. I never need to travel too far to find something interesting to paint – a few paintings have come about from the view over our back fence!
I do love the unique picturesque landscapes offered by the Clare Valley and often travel there to immerse myself in and paint the wonderful scenes on offer.
In South Australia the change of season is very evident and something I try to capture in my work – the Summer and Autumn seasons being my favourites. I enjoy experimenting with different styles, never becoming a complete convert to any particular one, but rather choosing a style or method that best suits the subject.
I hope you enjoy the work.
