Born in 1961. Grew up in Ferntree Gully, near the National Park. Mum always had colouring books for me, which kept me amused as I was an only child. Moved to Williamstown when I was nine. Went to St. Joesephs Secondary College. Move to Altona after getting married. Had one child, then had a set of twins. Moved to Seabrook in 2007. Started painting about four years ago.
