At sixteen years of age, I was motivated to attend the local adult art classes on my own.
I rediscovered my passion for painting after studying Visual Art, Fashion Design, Marketing and a demanding Thirty years working in the Newspaper and Magazine Advertising Industry. Here I used my visual ideas, in the printed form.
Six years ago, circumstances finally allowed me time to pursue my passion for painting.
I enjoy working in the acrylic and the oli mediums, recreating an image with impact and emotion, through my use of colour, in a contempary style.
Creating helps me express my love of the extraordinary Australian landscape and depict how blessed we are, to live in a country of such diversity.
Our beaches, the Red Centre, our rain forests and abundance of wild flowers give me much inspitation for my work.
My artistic visions and craft drive me to create works that bring enjoyment to myself and fortunatley others.
