After a second extended stint in Europe, in 1978 I returned to Australia to settle and I opened a gallery on Sydney’s lower north shore, which I successfully operated for 11 years. The gallery exhibited and sold my own work as well as providing a platform for other emerging artists of Sydney.
I found a niche in the area of corporate décor and enjoyed success with my innovative concept of leasing work on a rotating basis to match the décor of offices and hotel foyers, as well as selling many pieces outright.
In 1988 I established a business providing unique display themes for corporate and product launches, including painted backdrops, set props and ‘papier mache’ design works.
Over the past four years, I have nurtured my interest in contemporary aboriginal art – from which I draw great inspiration for my own work – and have become a respected local authority in the genre. Less
A member of the Cairns Art Society, I regularly exhibit my work in community art exhibitions in the region.
