A little about me
I am the chairman of the Banks Peninsula zone committee and was a Banks Peninsula district councillor before the council amalgamated with Christchurch city.
Drawing and painting have been a constant thread in my life. Drawing began at Saturday morning art classes at the age of sixteen, working from plaster casts of classical Greek sculpture. Then four years of art school, majoring in visual communication.
After that came a spell of teaching art, more study and, at every opportunity, practising. There has always been a compunction to paint, to use that particular medium to express ideas.
I have exhibited at the Powerhouse Gallery and Art et Fare in Akaroa, the Little River Gallery and in Christchurch at the Showcase Gallery and the Observatory Art Room.
