Location Kiama

Artist Type Semi Professional

Summary

In the past I have mainly been a cartoonist. Lately, I have hit on a niche with my latest paintings of Dinki Di Aussie Art. A Kangaroo smoking a pipe, a Koala smoking a cigar, and a Emu in party mode all painted on a Dirty Pour.

  • About

    Bright, colourful a little bit out of left field with a hint of cartoonism and a touch of ridiculousism. With a lot of imagination.

    I paint mainly for my own enjoyment if people like my art it is a bonus.

    In the past, it has always concerned me that my backgrounds were bland, since discovering the 'dirty pour' technique my artwork is taken on a new life.

    I'm definately not into landscapes or paintings where a photograph would suffice. In my paintings I endeavour to bring a smile to the viewers face. For example, a kangaroo smoking a pipe or another one wearing a Army slouch hat or a Koala in a bandanna smoking a cigar or a Rabbit a little worse for with a black eye patch
