Location Wingecarribee Southern Highlands

Artist Type Semi Professional


My work currently consists of photography depicting the stunning rural scenes located in the Southern Highlands. My most favored subject is the misty mornings and lush green farmlands found in the Eastern parts of the Highlands.

  • About

    My aim is to capture the serenity and natural beauty of the farmlands of the Southern Highlands. I enjoy the inclusion of animals in my images especially cattle. I have spent many a misty and frosty morning chasing the perfect shot of the stunning rural scenes found so often found in the Southern Highlands.

    Along my journey I have found the need to portray other aspects of the natural world such as the array of colours and shapes found in the natural environment. As a result, I have recently expanded my skills by exploring the delights of acrylic painting.

  • Biography

    I am a local farmer and photographer and having raised the children and sent them off into the world I am now free to pursue my own interests. While new to the art scene I am enjoying the challenge of combining my photography with my newfound skills in painting. I currently use acrylics and look forward to dabbling in watercolours, oils, inks and more.

    I have previously exhibited my work at Ten Thousand Paces in Bowral, Wingecarribee Foyer Gallery and the Southern Highlands Art Studio Trail as well as shared exhibitions in the Glenquarry Peace Memorial Hall with other local artists.
