I have devoted a life time to the Arts in some form or another.
Having completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts later in life, I experienced the luxury of taking my art on a self explorative journey. The resulting body of work gently evolved from an already existing signature style. The subject matter is intensely personal and luckily, my existing skills supported me through the distillation process of this creative direction.
Recently I was acknowledged in the 2013 Daylesford Art Show, having an Honourable Mention and also received second prize in the local Swiss Italian Landscape prize.
Mostly, I am known for my ‘EROS and ROSE’ venture, which is a product line I have developed based on romantic notions of unity.
Also, I am working on a series of portraits of people in the Arts, that tie in the above theme, see my blogspot through either of my websites for more details.
