I still cherish the memory of seeing a golden wheatfield for the first time when I was a small child living in England. Perhaps the artist was stirring within me even then. How I longed to live in the country and now I do although it is a different country that I cherish.
The panorama, the colour, the light and the spirituality of Australia have had a profound affect upon me, so much so that I knew that from the first day I arrived here in1965 that I would have to express and interpret my deep feelings for this land. It could have been through writing poetry perhaps. As it turned out I began to paint which I regard as my pictorial communication.
I have since furthered my love and interest for art by studying at Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga and I have a Diploma in Art. A Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fine art with Honours and a Masters Degree in Visual art.
