In the 1970’s I studied painting, photography and ceramics at Monash University (Monash campus), graduating in Fine Art & Design, followed by a Diploma of Education from Melbourne University. Between travels in Europe, Japan and the US through the 1980's and '90's I worked in retail management while creating much of the artwork and merchandise for sale at the family's art and craft gallery in Brighton. In 1998 I went on to establish Articall Art & Framing Gallery in New Street Brighton. My roles as owner/operator of Articall from 1998 to 2014 encompassed business management, art consultancy, picture framing, interior decorating, and conducting art classes for groups of all ages & experience. In 2014, after 16 years of operating from a retail space in Brighton, Articall had transitioned to trade solely as an On-line Gallery at www.articall.com.au. This change was to enable me to focus more on developing my own art practice, in addition to conducting weekly art workshops. Themes explored in my paintings range from urban landscapes to pure abstraction.
