My Occupation Artist and teacher
My Bio I am an artist and qualified teacher with a passion for colour, especially watercolour. I paint in a range of styes from totally abstract to totally botanically accurate, and from black and white to bold colour. I work in all media but enjoy watercolour the most. I teach drawing and watercolour and give workshops on colour mixing and watercolour technique.

I have exhibited in the USA, Singapore, Taiwan, China and Australia and am a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute.

Books by this author

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Coming soon - a watercolour reference book containing just about every colour you could mix with 15 colour palette. 64 pages including charts, colour wheels and explanatory notes.
Then a book showing 35 years of my art work.
Then a technical book on plein air sketching with a range of materials.
Lots of ideas :-)
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
There is an amazing website, www.handprint.com, which has more information on watercolours, their properties, the pigments used and so on than I have seen anywhere else. Remarkable!

Another great colour and watercolour author is Michael Wilcox. He wrote a guide to every watercolour manufactured that has had a huge impact on the manufacture of watercolour paints, and he has written a number of books about colour and colour mixing, the most famous of which is 'Blue and Yellow don't make Green'.
