About

Born in Melbourne. Grew up in Canberra, travelled extensively and worked for architects and building designers. Have lived in Sydney and along the coast and the tropics.

Never completed a degree due to life circumstances and mostly self-taught. Always loved painting since I was a child. Was given a set of colours and that set me off. Very inspired by every day life, people, street scales, landscapes and love of colour.

I completed a Tafe course which enabled me to work in the architectural field. Went to the country and built a home. After several years became a single parent and raised my sons and got back into painting. I called it Garage Art. I was in the garage a lot.

Though I have not exhibited extensively my first painting displayed was in the foyer of a large construction company . And one work sold at the Cranleigh School Art Show. Also illustrated some cartoons and a front cover for the Nation Review 1979.

As an emerging artist, I've left the garage, and now concentrate on building a body of works, that encapsulates my experiences and telling stories through the paintings.
