About the Artworks
I’ve made artworks for non fiction as well as fiction books, and created many paintings intended for private homes or art gallery walls. Whether it’s a book illustration or a canvas to be hung on a wall, I make no distinction between which has greater artistic merit, and which hasn’t. Similarly I don’t make distinctions between the artistic worth of representational and abstract art – it’s all visual arts.
Here is a selection of images from some of my children’s and young adult books (see the book section of this website for details of particular books) as well as some examples of the many illustrations I’ve contributed to the NSW School Magazine.
Below is a selection of other works, not intended as book illustrations, from more recent paintings back to life sketches from the 1980s.
