Describe your art in three words: realism in paint
"I started my art career at 16 as a retoucher and Illustrator, rendering hyper real images using the airbrush. In the 50 years of my freelance career, I learnt to use all mediums to achieve the client's required result. My first painting was hung in the salon des refusés of the Archibald Australia's major portrait prize. I started painting seriously after retiring from my advertising career."
