About Us


I'm so excited to present to you my latest and bestest art for sale.

I started out in a career of computer programming, advanced mathematics, engineering and robotics, but I finally came to my senses. Now I'm a full time artist painting images full of joy that bring happiness and wonder into people's lives. I love my job. I am living the dream.

Our lovely Art at Heart gallery and studio resides alongside our home at "Rancho Relaxo", our property on 2.5 acres on the leafy Australian bushland of Bellbowrie, in the outer western suburbs of Brisbane. From here I enjoy the peace and wildlife, paint, sell my art, and teach the occasional class to inspire other budding artists.

I first picked up a paintbrush in 2001 and blow me down if I didn't win an award right off the bat. Since then I have been lucky enough to win many awards, break records, and successfully complete many commissioned artworks for private collections, portraits, and public murals. I've entered the Archibald Prize with a portrait of an 11 time Olympic champion sportswoman, Libby Kosmala.

Starting out with watercolours, I have learnt how to paint confidently in all mediums, including acrylic, oil, pastel and mixed media. I teach all these mediums to complete beginners so they really understand the techniques and how to paint using structured methods.

We've got a team of 3 friendly and professional support ladies in the gallery office here to assist with processing sales orders, building top quality frames, and running the gallery, art school and studio. Gaia, our very friendly little Burmese gallery cat often greets visitors at the door.

The latest challenge I've set myself is to paint one small (6" square) painting every day this year for 2015. You can see them in the Daily Painting Series collection.
