Born in Melbourne in 1950, I first studied painting privately with Bill Coleman for four years prior to formal art study in the seventies. After gaining a Diploma of Art and Design (Painting) in 1975 from Prahran CAE (now the Victorian College of the Arts) and a Graduate Diploma of Education in 1977. I moved to Shepparton to teach art in secondary schools for five years, and then on to TAFE Art and Design for a further 25 years.

I have shown work in one man exhibitions and numerous group shows My paintings and prints have been purchased for both private and public collections in Australia and overseas.
