completed art studies at the James Street Art College, Perth, in 1971. From 1974 I worked as a graphic designer for the Dept. of Defense in Canberra. During the middle part of my career, I worked in graphic design and teaching on the Sunshine Coast. Working as head designer for six hat systems developing an interactive CD for Dr Edward DeBono. In 1994 I was awarded First Prize Drawing in the Maleny Arts Awards. I also ran my own graphic design business Sahitya Graphics between 1994 to 2009.

2006-9, with painting trips to France, I studied oil painting at Acros de la Frontera in Spain, under the direction of  the Famous American realist artist Daniel E. Greene. My work has been purchased by a number of private collectors in Australia and the USA.

“As an artist, I am drawn to realism. It takes me on a journey that has no end. By continually being in the question with the painting I can be in allowance of what it needs to be and how it turns out.”
