Links to other Military Artists

Since Australia's military history is so short in comparison to other countries, sadly we don't have the mass interest to encourage many artists to paint military themes - those that do get very little support.

I have no hesitation recommending these contemporary artists - they are filling a very important historical gap. If not for them, many great Australian military moments and heroes would go unsung to future generations.

On another note, some have commented that I'm crazy to have links to other military artists websites.  Frankly, I don’t mind if you choose to go with one of these talented Australian artists.  My hope is you find the military artist whose style best fits your needs. Furthermore, when you commission an Australian military artist it’s a win for our under-recognised, under-funded and under-championed industry.

Please take the time to visit their websites and leave behind a few encouraging words.
