Leona Collier

This portrait of legendary Brisbane trumpet teacher Leona Collier was based on a simple snapshot taken at lunch. The colours emphasise her bright, outgoing nature and the picture seems almost to catch her in middle of a conversation.

Right:  "Steve".   This is a painting of a friend who works in building supplies. The aim was to capture the essence of a classic Aussie bloke - strong, hard working, friendly and good natured.

Another musical portrait of a young violinist.
  The request was that the picture be bright and not too serious. The result is brilliantly colourful with a sense of youth and modernity but still conveys a sense of intensity and dedication.
