This self-taught, innovative artist has been painting since 1983, after leaving behind a career in the electrical trade. Wayne’s flamboyant style & signature effects are a result of his humorous approach and tremendous enthusiasm for his artwork.
Wayne’s art adorns private homes, hotels/clubs and corporate collections here in Australia and internationally.

Wayne is the host of Logie-nominated national TV program ‘Art Studio’ – airing on local 31 channels throughout Australia. Each episode of ‘Art Studio’ features Wayne creating one of his unique artworks and sharing his technique with the viewers.
More than just an artist, Wayne also commits himself to his philanthropy work. Over the years, Wayne has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable organizations including regional hospitals, rural fire brigades, SES, Cancer Council, Guide Dogs, Heart Foundation and, in particular, RACQ Careflight Rescue. All of this has been made possible by pursuing his dream career.
As a sought after artist and teacher, Wayne brings his art to the people and creates his work live on site, for all to see.
He travels throughout Australia, setting up his impressive display within shopping centres and paints right then and there, captivating passer-bys and bringing in fans whom are more than happy to just stand back and watch him work in person. Loyal admirers of Wayne’s work, and programme Art Studio, have been known to travel for hours just to watch him create a single piece artwork and shake his hand (and perhaps snap a picture with him while they’re at it!)
Wayne has been famously known for his quick work, creating up to 50 separate artworks in one short week. And after many years of painting, Wayne shows no signs of slowing down!
