About

I started painting as a way to deal with the daily anguish caused by the untimely death of my 24 year old daughter.
Painting has given me a new lease of on life...allowed me to lose myself and a way not to stop me reliving the awful day she was taken from us.
Art has been my saviour.
I am totally self taught.
I paint in acrylics and oils. I particularly love adding texture to my works. The reason I love texture is because my husband has, unfortunately, gone blind over the last 11 years. It is so great that he can 'feel' my work....if not see it.
I have successfully sold many art works since I started painting, including commissions.

Education

I was a Registered Nurse for 40 years. I think this has helped me develop a very good insight into small details. In some way, I believe it has made me more appreciative of life...in all it's forms.

I love the old masters and am amazed that they achieved what they did.

Influences

I grew up in rural WA. I love the colour of the land. The changes of colour, light and landscape through the seasons.
Now that I live near the coast, I adore the beach. Apart from the peace I feel, I am inspired by the power of nature, the creatures who inhabit the coast and watching the joy it brings to others.
I also love flowers and gardening which has influenced many of my works. I enjoy painting portraits of people and of their pets.
Finally, there us such a feeling of joy and achievement when a client chooses one of my paintings for their home.
