About

I am passionate about the landscape that has been the backdrop to my fortunate life. I have lived in the breathtaking Kimberley for over 20 years.

From pencil sketching to body sculpture, art has always been a part of who I am. In early 2000, a chance meeting with landscape artist, Jean Elizovich resulted in a learning experience; a wonderful exchange across the generations with oils on canvas and a new chapter of my life began.

A prolific artist, I have painted ever since, culminating in 11 successful exhibitions, one of which was with acclaimed artist Douglas Kirsop. 2011 was another turning point in my life and the decision that I would direct all my energy to my craft has been a joyful one. I opened the Broome School of Art and am now sharing my passion with others, whilst painting myself and growing my business. Painting is a time of stillness of mind for me, the music is loud and as I stand at the easel the world around me drops away and the meditative process begins.

Influences

The sheer grandeur of the country I hold so dear, the ebb and flow of the extreme tidal movement, the build up of the Wet Season, the desolation of country, the red of the pindan and the azure of her seas.
Jean Elizovinch, Ingrid Windram, Judy Prosser.
