I have been drawing since I was a child. I remember meticulously copying the illustrations from storybooks, obsessing over every detail.
In 2012, many years later and after a busy career a million miles away from art, I decided to revisit my childhood passion to see what I could achieve. After positive feedback from family and friends, I was encouraged to develop my skills further. I set up a web site to promote my work, joined several online art sites, started a facebook page and joined Twitter.
A little over a year later, I felt confident enough to enter my first gallery competition, the 2013 Lane Cove Art Awards. I was thrilled when my work “Contemplating” was awarded the People’s Choice Award.
In the years since I have had some wonderful highlights, including reaching the final round of the 2015 David Sheppard Wildlife Artist of the Year Award.
My work is known for being emotive. I like to create pieces that move the viewer, stir some emotional response and hopefully create empathy and awareness.
Looking to the future, I hope to be able to continue developing my skills by experimenting and practising my craft.
I love art and I am making the most of each day I get to draw!
