About

I have been painting since I was 4 years old and that was over 49 years ago.In that time I have been an art teacher ‚ graphic designer and full time silk artist‚illustrator and author. After growing up in Brisbane‚ it wasn't until I turned 17 and holidayed in the Whitsundays that my love of anything ocean began. My passion for painting combined with my fascination with the ocean became the cornerstones of all my art. I started painting on silk 27 years ago and it is still my medium of choice.
