Luckily born in Mamu Country (Innisfail), North Queensland, Australia.
I have otherwise known as “Gus” and have been painting professionally since 1980.
In my paintings of Australia, I endeavour to express my interpretation of this
land and its people, utilizing both my digital camera and the vivid dreams that I have every night.
My Studio is a ‘Bush’ studio near Blackbutt Qld and enjoy creating my paintings close to nature. I also ‘Plein Air’ paint, which is a great way to ‘feel’ your subject.
I currently exhibit and sell my work with Manly Gallery – Brisbane and Scattered Arts Gallery – Brisbane, Nimue Galley at Kingaroy.
I also teach art at Scattered Arts at Camp Hill ,Sebastian Studio in The Valley, The Manly Gallery and at Nimue Gallery in Kingaroy.
