Renowned Australian artist who paints in watercolour, pastel,and oil, and is recognized internationally for his unique watercolours.
"Rarely is an artist so able to fluently and seamlessly shift across the painterly disciplines of watercolour ,pastel and oil with such dramatic,startling and refreshing results--due in no small part to his drawing mastery, sensitivity to colour nuances and his ability to edit out unnecessary detail." [Jenny Pihan Fine Art]
