About

My passion for creating artwork began in childhood. When I wasn't doing all the other things kids did back then, like horse riding, swimming, and lots of other things, generally having fun, I was either reading or drawing. Later, I studied at ANU, UNSW and Canberra School of Art and entered the workforce.
As is often the case, adult life took over and my artistic pursuits went on hold, Some years later, I was diagnosed with a debilitating illness which effectively put an end to my very active lifestyle. At that point I rediscovered my creative abilities and have been painting and drawing ever since.

For me, this ushered in a new chapter in my life, studying again and attending numerous workshops to hone my artistic skills. While I have worked with many artists, the real turning point was when I met Phillip Greinke. An exceptionally gifted artist and a wonderful tutor, Phillip has been my mentor and good friend for may years
I have been fortunate in being awarded many prizes for my paintings and have also become a successful tutor. Some of my paintings now hang in private and corporate collections Australia wide, UK and Europe. An achievement of which I am very proud.
