Later, he relocated to Melbourne to study Fine Art and painting techniques. This was followed by extensive travelling of the world to study and broaden his technical knowledge. His first solo art exhibition was held at Young Originals Gallery, South Yarra . At the exhibition Ian discovered that some clients had queued for several hours prior to the opening, while others had travelled from interstate specifically to purchase his works. The exhibition sold out. He continued to hold one man exhibitions annually, all of which were extremely successful and most resulting in sell outs. Ian is among the minority of practising, professional artists whose income is derived entirely from the proceeds of their artworks.
During his career Ian has travelled extensively throughout regional Australia. Ian made several extended visits to the area. He relocated to North Queensland where he continues to live and work.
Ian’s works have been exhibited internationally in England (London) and the U.S. (Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego). His paintings are represented in private and corporate collections throughout the world. Among his personal clients are Heads of State including U.S. Presidents, Australian Prime Ministers and Governor Generals.
