Both the Outdoors and Urbanism have inspired my art.
I have designed, photographed, drawn and painted all my life. My main professional careers have been as an architect and a sustainable urban designer. A Princeton University graduate, I am founding director of Ecologically Sustainable Design Pty Ltd based in Melbourne. In recent years I (aged 69) have concentrated more and more of my time on watercolours, particularly en plein air while travelling to destinations of great natural or urban beauty. While earning a Master of Fine Arts degree in drawing and photography at the University of Texas at Austin in 1974, I taught life drawing, perspective drawing and architecture, and later at the University of California at Davis.
While loving and doing art, Nature and the Outdoors have equally fuelled my passions. Since my twenties, I have been an ardent whitewater kayaker. My favourite place on earth is the Grand Canyon, where I have kayaked the Colorado River many times.
