also completed courses in sculpture and moulding techniques at Monash.
I am a very fortunate artist who has had some of the best jobs in the world.
Starting my career as a graphic artist for Melbourne Printers, I soon took a
creative step forward when I started what turned out to be 35 years as a scenic
artist for ABC Television and Crawford Productions, (Channel 9 and 7). I
produced 3 dimensional images, backdrops and wall finishes for literally
hundreds of well known programs such as Homicide, Division Four, The
Great Air Race, One Summer Again, Countdown, Micallef, D-generation, Full
Frontal, In Melbourne Tonight, Big Gig, Sea Change, MDA, various ballets
Over a number of years I have designed, constructed and painted interactive
children’s displays throughout an entire school building for The Gould League
as the major part of their recycling education program for schools.
In 2002 I worked on a period film called “Love’s Brother”.
This Mediterranean love story often revolves around the gradual appearance
of a fresco painted by a gypsy artist ( Reg Mombasa)….I was the off – camera
I have created many indoor and outdoor murals environmental themes for
wildlife parks and the Phillip Island Penguin Parade Visitors Centre.
Working together with a marine biologist, I illustrated a book for
children on dolphins and sharks and wrote and illustrated other short stories.
I am currently doing my own thing here in Mornington, Painting, Drawing,
and gardening. Occasionally I put my artistic interest into a Childrens book
sparked by our grandchildren. But its the surf coast and landscape of the
Peninsula that spurs me on to paint its Beauty.
