I was born in Australia and have lived in Holland since i was 18. I have been painting most of my life. I was a colleague of Bea’s for 5 years and like her have had a colourful life and met many interesting people along the way. After art school i had a hard time and lost my way, i didn’t make art for years. Making the cover drawings for Bea’s books helped bring back my focus and passion for art. These paintings are from the last year, they reflect my mood and feelings through a difficult time. Painting is my outlet, it helps me understand my life.
