I will invite you into my East Melbourne art studio and offer you some refreshments before we start. We'll then begin the portrait sitting and I will paint your portrait with ink on watercolor paper. At the end of the session, you will be able to take home one of the portraits—signed by me—as a memento of your unique experience in bohemian Melbourne. It will be wonderful—can't wait to meet you.
I am passionate about art and have been involved in Melbourne's thriving bohemian art scene for many years, looking at art, studying art, and making art. Portrait making is my thing and is what you will find me doing most often. When I'm not making portraits, you will find me wandering around in the out-of-the-way galleries around Melbourne. I have a broad knowledge of the recent history of the contemporary art scene in Melbourne and love sharing stories about my experiences.

You will be invited to my studio located in East Melbourne. Over the years, many well-known artists have lived in this beautiful inner-city suburb, including famous landscape painter Eugene von Guerard and Ola Cohn, the artist who created the Fairies Tree in the nearby Fitzroy Gardens.
