When I was young I grew up surrounded by Colour. This became my life from an early age and not at least starting to meet artists from around Australia thanks to the insistence and encouragement of my mother. Life was hard for our family as my father was a Coal Miner and mum was stay at home. In those days we had a limited lifestyle but my family survived and we lived in our own house in Ipswich. Eventually I started to grasp the concept of using colour as a palette and fell in love with it. I didn’t have any concept or interest in composition as it complicated things with the constraints of placement in a confined area. Spontaneity was what I was interested in and still am.
