In 1989 I had an accident in a pool resulting in a fractured neck, C5-C6, and tetraplegia. That was the end of my life as I knew it. I was married with two young sons, Elliot (11 months) and Blake (2 years). As you can imagine this completely changed my life and the family’s forever.

I was an insurance agent with AMP Society at the time and had a successful business. Not able to continue with this, after meeting an artist with MFPA who encouraged me to paint, I was accepted as a student artist in 1995.

I enjoy the outdoors and the beach with my wife Sandy of 16 years and I have a hand-bike, which I use to get out and exercise my mind and body. We spend a good amount of time at Mt Maunganui.

My sons are now fully grown and have wonderful partners who we spend a lot of time with.

My hopes for the future are really to enjoy good health and happiness with my wife and family.
