I have been painting for 10 years, initially with the Beaumaris Art Group and now with the Elgin Artists for almost 7 years, where I have been developing my initial limited skills into what others describe as a unique style, influenced by those around me and by the pressure of having to participate in our annual exhibitions. My current medium of choice is watercolour.
In 2020 I generally doubled the image size of my works to A2. In this period of COVID -19 restrictions I was particularly productive despite not having access to our Studio for most of the year. Most of the works I exhibited in the 2020 virtual exhibition were based on local subjects in or near my Melbourne suburb of Black Rock, four on the Elgin Artists’ visit to the Bogong High Plains in late 2019; and others based on the devastating bushfires in early 2020, regular trips to the South Melbourne Market, and Lord Somers Camp. firstname.lastname@example.org 0418 893 676 www.elginartist.com
