About

I have been living and painting in the Shoalhaven, New South Wales for over twenty years. My first love is landscape painting, and I am lucky to live in an area that is diverse with beaches, farmland, bush and mountains.
In early 2015, I started a series of watercolour and ink paintings. Primarily, they were a series of comical emu paintings, called “Emusing” but I extended them to include watercolour paintings of birds and other creatures from my garden. I also have painted several abstract and surrealistic paintings.
I am Secretary of the Shoalhaven Art Society and also a member of the Jervis Bay and Basin Arts Inc., and Callala Beach Arts Group. I have participated in many local exhibitions and sold paintings in Australia, New Zealand, USA and England.
