My style has evolved from representational to abstract, mixed media and impressionistic. My work usually has an element of nature, and expression of the atmospheric conditions and the shifting effect of light.

My education includes a Bachelor of Education with a Major in Art Education. I have taught courses in drawing, watercolour, acrylic and oil.
