As it should be in an ideal world... my father Doug had a profound influence on my development both as a person and an artist. His philosophy is simple - believe in yourself, do your best ,and always go that extra mile.
Dad wore his commitment on his sleeve. and was known as an innovator in the sign writing industry. In the seventies he had a vision for a mural on a clients vehicle. While the cost couldn't be justified he managed to gather sponsors to share the financial load. The end result won many accolades and was an award winning New Zealand first.
Before retiring from his business to paint full-time he had amassed a formidable array of sign writing awards. This was no mean feat in an era when handwriting was the order of the day and there were no 'quick fix' computer technicians. I am immensely proud of my father's achievements and have been influenced by him in my own work.
