Early paintings - archived

Examples of my early paintings are surprisingly original, colourful and inventive. These artworks are from the beginning of my artistic career.  Painting and sculpting part-time, after working all day as an architect in an office, the achievement is quite admirable.


welcome


This online fine art gallery shows a broad range of my contemporary paintings, bas-reliefs, sculptures and works on paper.

With each painting and sculpture shown I provide a short artist statement (some are tongue-in-cheek comments), so as to give some insight into the ideas associated with the artwork's creation and as I see it, the ideas arising from the finished piece.

This website also provides a broad range of other art related information, such as different art theories, artistic approaches and the benefits visual arts offer to art lovers.

You can also find here useful advice and tips for art art students, emerging artists and art collectors.

 

If you want to find out more about the artistic process and discover various approaches to creativity, please feel free to explore this site.

If you would like to receive my Newsletters, which announce forthcoming art exhibitions and other significant art events, please email me.

I also list links to fellow artists whose work I admire and to websites which cover modern art history, different art theories and the work of old and modern masters.

As a professional painter I create artworks which celebrate the wonders of Nature, nourish the human spirit, and provide enjoyment, stimulation and a touch of magic to our lives ... ideas, artist manifesto

I live in Sydney and I prefer to use bright, happy and vibrant "Australian" colours, creating paintings influenced by my immediate environment and some of which are also Aboriginal art inspired.
