Drawing has always been an interest to me outside of my professional career and acts as a contrast from the corporate environment to allow a balanced perspective on life.

Recently we have taken up scuba diving and snorkelling in Far North Queensland – Orpheus and Pelorus islands and also around Flinders Victoria. I have been inspired by the unusual marine life found in these regions including Leafy Sea Dragons, Nudi Branches and Invertebrates.

I also draw subject matter that is part of my everyday life  Рas images present themselves I capture the color and form and feel compelled to visually portray these as soon as I can.

Recently I have started using oil pastels as I am mesmerised by the vivid colors that reflect the world around me.
