About me & my work:

I am a consultant and entrepreneur with more than 30 years experience working in Aboriginal and Australian Contemporary art.

I established Australia's oldest Aboriginal art gallery -Coo-ee Aboriginal art Gallery in 1981. Amongst the many positions I have held have been Founding President of the Aboriginal Art Association of Australia and Director of Aboriginal Tourism Australia; I am the former Head of Aboriginal Art for Lawson~Menzies, and was Managing Director of Menzies Art Brands until 2008. I also acted as the President of the Art Consulting Association of Australia for more than 5 years. In 2014 I published a definitive book on the history of the trade in Australian Aboriginal art titled The Dealer is the Devil. It is still available through the National gallery of Australia, all state art galleries and libraries and many specialist book shops.
