A professional artist, Malcolm places a great emphasis on the composition and content of a subject. Combined with sound draftsmanship and an understanding of tonal contrasts and colour, his paintings are both visually interesting and straightforward statements of everyday places and things around him. His paintings depict the life and activity of his environment.  His watercolours and oils are characterized by a purity of colour and a straightforward arrangement of tonal values. This emphasizes the light, which, together with a broad approach to detail and careful composition make them stand out from the crowd.
Malcolm's work is represented in corporate and private collections both in Australia and overseas. He undertakes regular workshops and demonstrations throughout Australia, and runs a school conducting classes in both watercolour and oil painting technique. He has led paintings tours overseas, and as a regular contributor to the Australian Artists magazine and the International Artists Magazine, his interest in recording his culture and heritage is well known.
Born in 1945, Malcolm works and lives with his wife and children in Melbourne.
