The bay with busy water traffic was also a short walk the other way. Chrysalis Gallery was in the main street where I had one small exhibition of my drawings, and the Cricketers arms was a small pub adjoining the studio. As sales in the early 80s were a bit rare, I took on a substitute teaching job as art teacher at Williamstown Primary School. At lunch times I could quickly sketch waterside comings and goings and after school I could take the Westgate into the city without any effort in those days. Leaving my studio in Port Melbourne I travelled to New York to view contemporary artworks before returning to join Roar Studios in 1983. My studio at Roar was a productive space with a strong urban influence but the bayside areas were stronger. Many of my works are still influenced or affected by my Melbourne bayside experiences; so much so that I continue to be drawn to, and live in the Melbournes bayside burbs.

I always remember my port melbourne studio as a major influence in the narrative of my paintings. As a member of the Artworkers union in 1981, I shared a large 2 story studio for about 12 months.

 

With the rail line a short walk away I could always view and soon visit inner city venues and galleries.
