I am a self taught potter with no formal training. I began when my 2 children were very small and we lived on a farm on the Murray River in southern New South Wales. Although isolated from other potters, I was able to phone my mother for advice as she had taken up pottery several years before me. These calls always ended with her saying that if in doubt, then read the “Potters Manual”. Which I did, over and over again! So with…

I love to openly express myself with a variety of mediums on canvas with brushes, ink, resin, mixed media, pouring mediums and paints. Always experimenting with texture and colour using varied techniques and multiple layers within my paintings giving my art the impression of being almost 3 dimensional. I draw my inspiration from my love of life, nature and exceptionally beautiful surrounds which resonates in my painting techniques. My art celebrates the beauty and wonder of the world, engaging viewers…

I have had a fortunate and enjoyable art career. With residencies, overseas travel, publications in books and magazines, interesting commissions and exhibitions that have seen my work sold across Australia and overseas. I am inspired by our beautiful wildflowers and wildlife. Dedicated to realism I strive to portray the essence of my subject. I have recently discovered pastels, and I am new to acrylic. I have added pet portraiture, painting blue and white Chinoiserie objects, still life, fine coloured pencil…

“I don’t know in advance what I am going to put on canvas any more than I decide beforehand what colours I am going to use.” Pablo Picasso Picasso’s statement very much reflects the way I approach my art practise. I prefer to start with an initial mark or stroke of colour and paint intuitively allowing the painting to develop as the layers are applied. The physicality and tactile properties of multi layered paint and mixed media in the pure…

I enjoy the wonders of nature – it is the driving force behind my photography, creating images for others to enjoy. My love of the outdoors and nature is my place for taking photographs, both in Queensland and through out…

I have always been artistic and creative, sketching and painting whenever I could find the opportunity, but it wasn’t until my children became independent and semi-retirement a reality that I was able to truly reignite my passion for art. In 2012 I returned to the easel in earnest, and I am thoroughly enjoying the journey! I am very lucky to live on Brisbane’s bayside, with Moreton Bay and its islands literally right on my doorstep. I love the Bay’s ever…

I cannot remember a time when I was not being creative. The path to being an artist began as a child when I won an art competition run by the Melbourne “Age”. After working overseas for several years I returned to Melbourne, married and moved to Brisbane and raised my family. It was then when I started my foray into the fashion market with quirky t-shirts.  The uniquely Australian designs sold extremely well on the Gold Coast and overseas in…
