About

Hi‚ I am a painter and an art teacher at Willunga High School. I studied at The North Adelaide school of Art, The University of Adelaide and Uni SA.

My humble achievements include:

- Winning two art awards for best landscapes in 1998
-an online finalist in Lethbridge 2 10‚000 Small Scaled Art Awards 2012 & 2013
- a finalist in Adelaide Cliftons Art Prize 2012 & 1014
-winning 3rd prize for The Hahndorf Academy Prize 2017
- Winning 1st prizes for portrait painting under 500x600 cm at The Royal Adelaide Show 2018.
-Winning 2nd prize for landscape painting under 500x600 cm at The Royal Adelaide Show 2018.
-Winning 1st prize for still life painting under 500x600 cm at The Royal Adelaide Show 2018

I have sold many paintings. all over Australia. Each artwork is ready to hang and have a simple black frame fitted by a professional framer. This adds aesthetic value to the work and gives it a professional finish.
Although able to paint portrait, figures and still life, I mainly paint trees and have been nicknamed "The Tree lady".
I make art in my little home studio.
