I was born on 2nd May 1968 in the Adelaide hills and now work out of my home studio in Athelstone.
Despite learning to draw in high school, I spent most of the next 25 years developing a professional career, whilst occasionally writing poetry and drawing.
In mid-2009, I left the professional career world, and became a self employed landscape gardener. This freed up my time to begin doing art regularly. I attended drawing and mixed media lessons that year, and decided to draw Brisbane in pencil on paper. An ambitious project which took around 200 hours. The drawing was only 15x15cm but sold privately for $1900 to an art collector on Bribie Island in Queensland.
After this success, I decided to concentrate on cityscapes. Mostly because since the invention of cameras, artists stopped drawing cityscapes. My niche is almost unique and considered by the art world in Adelaide as a revival of a lost art. They are also considered historically significant based on their rarity, and that they capture a moment in time of an entire city.

Further Professional Development

 February 2014
It is worth noting that I called the National Gallery of Art in Canberra on 28th February 2014 to advise that my current project is to hold an exhibition of all 8 Australian capital cities in their Gallery upon their estimated completed in 2016. Their response was literally "Wow! Please send information and images to the Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings". I am awaiting a response in good time.
 February 2014
 Melbourne From The East 2014 (62x25cm) was completed after 350 hours. It is drawn based on Melbourne's skyline in 2007 (with the Eureka tower but without the new stadium in Richmond). It has not yet been marketed to galleries or governments in Victoria. If accepted as an entry, the first time Melbourne from the East becomes public, will be in the 2014 NWOP Prize for Drawing event.
January 2014 to now:
Self employed art teacher. I teach drawing to children and adults, for personal development and as therapy. My clients also include the elderly and architects.
February to November 2013
Drawing & Mixed Media Teacher, University of the Third Age, Adelaide CBD
Every week, for the entire learning year, I taught people over 50 to draw in three easy lessons. I then evolved the lessons to include mixed media (ink, colour, wax, sponge, etc). A very rewarding and productive year for us all.
August 2013
Two professional art collectors and the curator of one of Adelaide's top galleries value my cityscape drawings at approximately $7000 each.
 July 2013
 Adelaide From The North 2013 (48x29cm) was completed mid 2013 after 450 hours. It appeared on Channel 7's 6pm News on Sunday 29th July that year. The original work was displayed in the Angus & Robertson window (Myer's Centre, Rundle Mall, Adelaide) for the month of July.
November 2012
Sydney 2012 was completed in mid 2012 (67x29cm) after 300 hours. The NSW Minister for the Arts, George Souris, sent me a personal letter praising the work, and referred my original letter and images to the Art Gallery of NSW for review.
 Next - Hobart, then Canberra, Perth and Darwin.
I would like to complete a total of at least 24 cities over the next 12 to 15 years.
London, Oxford, Rome, Paris, Jerusalem, Dubai, Shanghai, Christchurch, Casablanca, Dubrovnik, Delhi and Mecca (if acceptable to the Muslim community) are among my current favourites.
