    Wilderness

Tasmania is without doubt a beautiful Island. Many visitors come to enjoy our National Parks and Alpine areas. What an inspiration it is to me to be able to venture into wilderness areas just a few kilometres from my home.
  I have chosen to divide my image gallery into four categories. Some images may appear in more than one location which will be apparent why, when looking at them.

Unlike a photographic gallery where they may be hundreds of images I currently have less than 30 images for viewing. Most of these paintings represent many months of effort and when working to a deadline where I may have a commission to finish or as in the Glover Prize, a competition date to work too,  it can be quite exhausting.

But always enjoyable and always satisfying.

I hope you enjoy my work, you are welcome to email me with your comments.

 
    Seascapes

Perhaps a misnomer as I like to paint not only ocean and coastal scenes but the villages and inlets around our shores. As you can imagine there is a lot of overlap where the mountains come down to the sea.
   
             
    Landscapes

The Native forests, rolling hills, laneways and pathways of our countryside offer me an endless choice for my paintings. I particularly enjoy the pastel colours of our drier months.
     
             
    Homesteads

Many of our early settler cottages and homes retain both an English charm and a tough no nonsense pioneer approach. Often set amongst imported trees with native forests over broad acreage as a backdrop. This category includes landmark buildings.
