My Art Life History
No art school. No tuition. It began with a brief skirmish with dry and oil pastels on A4 paper around the millennium, when I was living on the Aegean coast of Turkey. Once that was over, nothing except a few dozen greeting card sized paintings until 2012, when a handful of works on canvas happened. In 2014 my consistent practice got under way.
Kia ora, Greetings,
Thank you for visiting. The status of each painting is noted, if SOLD, consigned to a gallery, or involved in a selection process or NFS. Otherwise all work is for sale.
I appreciate your interest, and am happy to respond to questions on the contact page.
