Style

I work in pastels and my subject matter is mainly animals. I am also a wildlife photographer. My other medium is the computer. I animate other people’s art work. I also design websites.

Biography

I started my art career as a webmaster. I was the webmaster of MS South Australia, MS Western Australia, the Cora Barclay deaf centre, Childhood Cancer and the Masonic Foundation. I also did the Fleurieu Art Prize website before it was taken over.

While doing websites I was called upon to take photos and that started my love affair with photography. I now sell my photographs online through Bigstock.com, Dreamstime.com, istockphoto.com, and six other companies. My name on these sites is ozflash.

I also learned how to do animation and have incorporated it into many websites. I have a diploma in teaching and one in micro computing. While waiting to pick up my grandchildren from the bus stop, I started drawing with colored pencils to pass the time. I enjoyed it that much. I did a WEA course to find which medium I should use. I found I enjoyed pastels.

Achievements

I have done three commissions for people whose pets have died.
I will do charity websites for free.
