Eclectic and Various!
Art School educated, with an awareness of the context of Art and its history, but an obstinate outsider to any concept of an ‘Australian Art. I regard myself as self taught, and the process ongoing.
I am not motivated by what is fashionable, but I am interested in ‘now’; this fluid 'time' we transit, and how we as a cognitive species relate to it. .....and I require that my work be accessible at some level to anyone who will look at something.
Art is language that requires neither hearing nor speech.
At its best Art is us, looking at ourselves.

Skill and facility are not enough – a certain flair is important which this work clearly demonstrates” David Fairbairn 1991
“Interesting ideas and intriguing narrative” Wendy Sharpe 1999
