"My aim:‘To tell a story through my work to lift and inspire the spirit and heart.’ As a keen observer‚ I enjoy drawing my inspiration from the vibrant world around me. I love the natural world and am a keen conservationist and believe that our world is a sacred place made by a loving God. My more recent work focusses more on still life and the teacup‚ however most of these paintings are of my earlier wildlife work."
Attend various workshops under the guidance of respected professional artists both in person‚ through books and online.
1981 - Completed 2 years full time at Randwick Technical College for Graphic Design‚ covering photography‚ illustration‚ design‚ calligraphy colour & worked in this field for 15 years.

The ordinary things of everyday life‚ objects that we overlook but that hold meaning for us in some way. Presently focussing on teapots & teacups and the stories that can be told through them...the memories and symbolism in their use in daily life.
Am inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt‚ Rembrandt‚ Illustrator Edward Dulac‚ James Guppy
