My Profile

Born in Lilydale, Victoria, a first generation Australian of Dutch migrants, I began drawing and painting in oils at around nine years of age. I excelled in Art and Music at school and began working life as a junior display artist (Retail Merchandising), studying show card and ticket writing at night school.

Moving to Brisbane, Queensland at nineteen, I worked in various jobs, then undertook a three year full-time course in Commercial Art-Illustration.

Later I worked in the printing trade as an illustrator and assembly artist. I am also a self taught musician and songwriter. I currently live in the Upper Yarra Valley of Victoria and am busily involved in developing new ideas for community based art projects.

As a Mural Artist and with the help of local councils, I am striving to add colour and atmosphere to local communities in and around Melbourne, Victoria.

You can email me for further information, enquiries, orders, quotes, new ideas or just to say hello.
