Background
Trained and qualified as a graduate architect in 1980. Worked 2 years in architectural practices.

1982 - set up a small design studio in Leederville. Was involved in the advertising industry with partners until 1991.
Since then has been the Principal of his own business 'Campaign Focus', now situated at 49 Railway Parade.

Present address was purchased in October 2001 to set up the advertising agency in a warm and friendly environment with the character of an older house and being suitable to hang Spiridon Paintings.

4 years ago went to Tafe to study sculpture and painting to create original art pieces for newly constructed studio apartment in Crawley. Most of the paintings have been completed in the last 2 years and a new place to hang them was required because the wall space at Crawley was all taken up.

The Mount Lawley office was purchased and now has the walls hung with an eclectic collection of Spiridon art works.
The new Knutsford Arms Cafe Hotel now has 7 Spiridon paintings on the walls with over 20 pieces being on display at an exhibition of the weekend of 5th and 6th October. Included in this exhibition will be the latest work of a Ned Kelly series.
