About

Born in England, in the 1960s I spent time at the Canterbury University of Fine Arts, in New Zealand, where I obtained my Preliminary Diploma in Fine Arts.

I belonged to the Christchurch Art Society and during 1970s onwards, the Lower Hutt Art Society in Wellington and the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts.

To make a living I was a graphic artist, running my own successful advertising agency business and training many new people into the industry. I retained my skills as a fine artist and exhibited on many occasions with art societies and sold many works.

In 2004 I came to Brisbane, Australia and have since then become involved with local art groups in the Redlands area.

Influences

ARTIST STATEMENT
The bright light, the wide expansive skies and the changing colours of the sea, all help create in the ideas for many of my paintings. The wonder and uniqueness of Australia has me trying to grasp a feeling for all its individual flora and fauna.

My husband and I enjoy visiting places not far from, and around Australia where he photographs a lot of the scenic places and wildlife that I paint. He is a photographic artist in his right.

Over the years I have explored many different mediums in my artistic endeavours.
I love painting with acrylic and oils, assemblage and utilising photography.
