About

Definitely not going to bedazzle with how many awards I have... EXCEPT... (now you've asked) art award WINNER... Peaking early, Grade 2 - colouring within the lines... proud moment, won a pack of felt-tipped pens in a tin box with a Gauguin masterpiece on the outside & haven't looked back... Unfortunately still haven't worked out how to replicate that work in felt pens, the man was a genius.
OK a little more about moi... I paint & create down in the Driftwood Palace, a small studio built by someone I love (mostly) entirely of treasures found Beachcombing, driftwood, discarded rope, broken pieces of once floating vessels, and of course, inside, a Shelle... I love it there, and once a bar fridge goes in I may never leave again ;) Anyhow, pleased I got the chance to intro myself & say Hola, and if you think you'd like to, check out my work, drop in anytime, you don't even need to scrap off your Doc Martin's on the 'Welcome' mat, I want to show you stuff, I have some canvases waiting on being rehomed, and others waiting to feel the sweet caress of a fully loaded brush ;)

***UPDATE***I realise being a professional artist I should be more serious (ahem) so want to share with you that I'm totally chuffed to have a combined Exhibition showing at the 'Cowper Gallery' (utterly magic location) in NSW, called 'Snippets, Fragments... Form' with Nardia Hill, it runs from September 8th until October 21st 2018 :)

Education

Yep!
Heaps... well a fair bit more than anticipated when I first walked though those prison-like school gates, education was a love/hate relationship, totally interfered with lunch time, and really, not being allowed to take food into libraries (what Spanish Inquisitor came up with that torture?)... think the nuns may have wanted me to achieve more at school, bless 'em, then off to art college... you know what's good about art college(?)...
Lunch ;)

Exhibitions

Not really an exhibitor (artists more voyeurs?), but yes, snuck a canvas into 'Brett Lethbridge Gallery' in Paddington & my painting was sold (before it hung), so thrilled & ticked that babe off my 'must-do' list ;) Now sharing an exhibition "Snippets, Fragments... Form" on the walls of the wonderful Cowper Gallery in NSW with a fellow artist which opened September 8th, & closes October 21st 2018

Press

Not Press so much... Few squats, sit-ups, mostly treadmill.

Influences

Many, seriously, I can't joke about this... from the art that hangs in the Lourve to what is spray-painted on city walls, influences are countless artists, from the sculptor who painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel to the tattooist who arts walking canvases... so many, inspire me... the artists & their glorious visions they have created & shared, kudos to them all.
