The artist says of his art:
"I paint mainly birds in their flowered and intricately foliaged environments.
Birds to me represent freedom and the fearlessness and innocence of their beauty itself. Their colours and forms become exotic when so sharply focused, and colour and forms transcend reality."
Represented in most Australian Regional Art Galleries, Private and Institutional collections in Australia and overseas.
