Event description

Description

Neil was born in Adelaide in 1963 and moved to Perth with his family in 1978. He then decided to pursue a career in graphic design and at studied at Perth Technical College from 1980-1982. It was here that he developed his drawing and painting skills.

Always seeking to explore and expand his own boundaries, Neil trained in many fine art mediums, including but not exclusive to, print making, photography, painting, sculpture and mixed media.

These skills, coupled with his ability to merge the technical world of design with the emotive and often sensitive world of visual art, has created a style that is distinctively his.

Neil's prime objective when creating is to explore and to have fun. By constantly experimenting and introducing new mediums he is able to maintain passion and excitement toward his work. His paintings are usually on board as it offers a robust surface that allows him to glue, screw, nail or rivet items to the surface. The items that are attached are usually recycled or found objects, chosen because of their texture or colour. Neil’s sculptures are usually made from found objects and display a sense of fun.
