Since 1983 he has had numerous solo exhibitions, represented now in major public collections and has retailed his work in the most prestigious outlets around the world.
|Cool Climate Wineries
The Canberra District - which includes a large area centering on Yass - is a small but exciting wine region, full of boutique wineries and passionate winemakers. The climate in Canberra is cool by Australian standards, with the lower elevations able to ripen varieties such as cabernet sauvignon and shiraz, and the higher elevations being among Australia's coolest, well suited to varieties such as riesling and pinot noir. Chardonnay consistently performs well in the continental climate, although Clonakilla is proving that shiraz has exceptional potential.
