About

Life was smooth sailing for my husband and myself. A few years ago I had a TIA (mini-stroke) which left me with some medical problems.
My husband suggested that I started to paint. It was something that I dabbled in years ago but due to work and family commitments, I stopped. I took my husband’s advice and just kept painting and painting. I found it helped with my mental and physical restraints. The funny part about it was that I enjoyed it and I found out I was good at it, people liked my work.
I am a self-taught artist, so it just goes to show that everyone has an artist within themselves, you just have to find it. I was invited to place my work into exhibitions. So far I have had artwork in 18 exhibitions, I have won 3 awards, and been in 4 SALA exhibitions. I was lucky enough to have been interviewed several times on the radio and was asked to do a painting for an exhibition with the government project Torrens to Torrens in South Australia, they placed a photo of my painting and did an article in regard to my piece.
I am in the process of building my own website where my customers can order commission work and buy online from me.
Painting started out as a kind of ‘distraction’. Now, painting is my job. It gives me the ability to express my thoughts and emotions in my own unique way. It has also given me a sense of self-worth. I am lucky to do a job that I love.
I never thought that picking up that paint brush for the first time, would change my life the way it has.
