Born in Mellieha, Malta on the 5th September 1971. His parents emigrated to Australia when he was 9 months old. Ever since he could walk he would always be found with pencils and paper in his hands drawing whatever came to my mind. It was during those years at school that his teacher Mr Alfred Vella encouraged him to take art seriously and arranged private art lessons with artist Mrs Doris Fenech from Mosta. At the age of 10 I started using oils on canvas for the first time and quickly fell in love with the medium and haven?t stopped using it since. Oils give him a feeling of freedom to blend the colours do they remain crisp, sharp and vibrant without losing any texture.
