About the Artist :
I describe myself as a hobby artist. I retired from the full time workforce two years ago, therefore I have been able to devote more time to my art. Over the years I have produced a number of artworks, most of which hang proudly around the house. My art is often characterized by detail, and I have worked in oil, acrylic, ink and copper. Following a visit to a Torres. Straits Island exhibition in. Melbourne, I decided to try my hand at Lino cut printing. My first attempt 'Koi' was drawn onto a 45 cm linoleum tile, and carved over a period of 6 months. The resultant print block has then been used to hand press a limited edition of 50 prints on Stonehenge watercolour paper. I have been delighted with the response to this work, and have already sold a couple of prints. My wish, is that my hobby could be self financing.
