I was very keen on art at school in South Africa. But I strayed into engineering and manufacturing, creating and constructing a wide range of products, from high end audio amplifiers to 200 tonne power transformers. Along the way I have strayed into ceramics, leaded light window design and construction and sculpting in wood, clay and stone. I am a keen photographer which supports my interest in landscape painting
Now I concentrate on Pastel Painting and more recently Oil Painting. I have participated in many exhibitions around Christchurch selling a few works. My painting concentrates on landscapes and birds.
I like to paint with others, with the Canterbury Pastel Group and am co-organiser of Diamond Harbour Art Group.
