Born in Adelaide quite a while ago, I started illustrating around grade six at primary school where my teacher was impressed and said I should be a commercial artist when I grew up. So I became and worked at Griffin Press as an artist, went to Messenger Press and became creative manager, ran my own graphic art business for 10 years in Laura, then went back to the Advertiser as a graphic designer and became creative manager at Advertiser Newspapers.
During all this time I was still painting and illustrating in my spare time.
Eventually retired and moved to Edithburgh to open my own Gallery which was reasonably successful, at the moment the Gallery is closed as I am putting my efforts into painting murals around the area.
I really enjoyed the challenge of the Willo idea, turning a cricket bat into a piece of art for a very good cause .. close to my heart.
