Ian has been involved in creating art since he was studying in the talented art programme in high school.
He studied Design at the Western Australian Institute of Technology and commenced his working life as a
self-employed photographer and graphic designer.
Ian moved into the advertising industry and worked for many years in advertising as a Graphic Artist and Studio Manager utilising various software to create finished art for print.
More recently Ian returned to painting and drawing and is enjoying working primarily with acrylics and oil pastels. Ian is based in Perth, Western Australia.
Ian entered his first exhibition in the 2019 Artsource Salon Exhibition NOW. Later that year he exhibited at the Darlington Arts Festival and commenced 2020 as an entrant in The Collie Art Prize 2020.
Ian has found inspiration recently in creating artworks through portraits of family pets and is available for commission work. He also has a passion for painting landscapes, in particular Western Australian landscapes and
this is evident in his current paintings that are based on holidays held at favourite places over a number of years.
It is the landscapes that are often the impetus for beautiful contemporary artworks.
