I was born in Ipswich in 1968. Have Lived on the Sunshine Coast for the last 15 years. Married to Paula and have two daughters. I picked up a paint brush for the first time 18 months ago and painted a mate of mine. Wow! the pleasure the process of creating something from nothing and presenting it to the subject was a feeling that I wish I had found years ago. If you want to give someone a special gift. Why not give them a portrait of some one they love and or admire. All I need is a photo and I can send the artwork anywhere in the country.
