I have been performing and writing music professionally for more than 40 years in venues ranging from the Kimberleys to the Sydney Opera House.
This broad repertoire I call "Baroque to Rock", which covers basically Bach to the Beatles. In recent years I have turned my attention to our rich heritage of visual art and in the same spirit have developed a painting repertoire ranging from Vermeer to Van Gogh.
Key to these processes is an understanding of style. I enjoy applying stylistic elements of the masters to Australian scenery.
Detail from one of my Ord River paintings. To see this particular scene I had to paddle a canoe 25 km down a crocodile infested river!
In some of the paintings I use a paint I made from the actual ochre rock. Making the paint is a painstaking process, I can assure you!

Pentecost River, the Kimberleys, painted in the style of Van Gogh.
The same location painted using techniques as would have been used by Monet.
I run my own cultural academy on Sydney's North Shore where I teach literacy in art and music. I have written and published 26 books on Art and Music.
