Born in NSW, I grew up in Sydney and have drawn and painted since childhood. I won 1st prize for painting at age 7, and never stopped painting or drawing. I studied watercolour, composition and life drawing at East Sydney Tech. (Before it was TAFE!) then trained in an illustration studio doing line and tone illustrations for newspaper advertising.

I’ve won a number of awards (1sts. 2nds, and HCs) and sold work at art shows, galleries and exhibitions in Central Coast, Liverpool, Gulgong, Dubbo, Taree and around the Hunter Valley, including National Regional Gallery exhibitions in Maitland and Muswellbrook, and Art in the Gardens (early 80’s in Sydney.)

Helen Pickler taught me so much in illustration techniques, and the work of Tony Onorato showed me that watercolour can be vibrant and doesn’t have to be watery! I admire the work of people like Warwick Fuller and John Singer Sargent. A big influence on me has been my friend Linda Camac, who got me using more colour, pushes me on when I sag and makes me laugh!
