Born in Australia in 1957, but raised in Papua New Guinea, David attended a boarding school in Brisbane before studying Horticulture at Queensland Agricultural College. He had varied work experience until taking up teaching in 1987 with his wife Wendy. They have three children – Holly, Samuel and Grace. David has been drawing, painting and printmaking for personal pleasure since preschool days and currently teaches Art at Allora State School.
He has won prizes in a number of regional competitions over the years. Some photos of his work can be found on facebook under the name “TheArtybloke” and several prints are available on Etsy… also under the name “theArtybloke” (couldn’t quite match the spelling)
