So write a journal ?? Okay, since I probably won't be writing that many I will give you a bit of background information.

I have always been interested in art, something my parents encouraged and recognised early. My dad got some art lessons for me when I was about 9. I first started with watercolours with a lady called Dorothy Peck, every Saturday for about an hour or so. Eventually I wanted to try more styles of art, so Dorothy recommended a friend of hers, Sue Gorringe. For a while I was receiving tuition under both, until Dorothy moved away.

Sue's lessons where a lot longer then Dorothy's, sometimes up to 3 hours every Saturday. Through Sue, I was able to try my hands at acrylics, oils, pastels, sculpture, wood carving and clay modelling, plus a lot more. I continued to see Sue up until just after I finished high school.

After I left school, I went onto study graphic design at TAFE. I have completed Desktop Publishing Cert II, Pre-Press Design Cert II, Design Fundamentals Cert III, and Graphic Design Foundation Cert IV. I eventually was lucky enough to get a job in graphic design, where I worked for 3 years until the business closed down. After about 4-5 months of being unemployed and thinking I was not going to be able to get another job in design, I found another job and have been working there ever since.

I've always just sat and drawn, but for a while I found that my motivation decreased. But, this is something I have rediscovered over the last 3 years or so. Also venturing into some photography, something I yet have no confidence with! My main tools of the trade are felt tip pens, but I also love painting with acrylics.

Well that's about all, if you ever need to know anything else just ask me.

I've always loved art, drawing and creating. My work can be quite abstract at times. Often I'm asked to try and explain what it all means, but usually I sit down, pen on paper, and just let my mind flow.
