Originally from Sydney, I have lived in London, Port Moresby and am now residing in Manly, Brisbane where there is an abundance of inspiration with beautiful sunrises, sunsets, boats bobbing in the bay or racing, bird life, flora and fauna. Loads of inspiration.
I have been fortunate to study art under Margarette Looney, who introduced me to the wonderful world of colour, Piet Noest who opened my eyes to what I could achieve and the talented De Gillett who introduced me to texture and inks; a technique I continue to enjoy. I am constantly on the lookout for workshops where I can forge new skills with the latest passion being water marbling with Bronwyn Rayner of raynbowcrowstudios.
Apart from painting, I have created a market for my original artwork designs on saris, scarves, pocket squares, cushions, marbled glass ware and serviettes. These are all sold through Manly Harbour Gallery
