Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

I am influenced by my surroundings – the mountains, coastline and also the inner western suburbs of Sydney where my children currently study. I work primarily with paints, and as a Printmaker using a wide range of materials.

After studying at Sydney College of the Arts, I exhibited at various galleries in Sydney – then got a ‘real’ job so that I could pay bills etc, then travelled, had children and did the things that many, many other people do. I did very little art-wise for about ten years (although I thought about it quite a lot).

I started painting again after my Dad died and I just felt that I really needed to do something that I loved and that meant something to me so here I am….

I am inspired by organic forms in nature as well as the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements so I tend towards work which is rustic and linear and colours which can also be decorative.

I love to paint and draw and to see other people’s art and am looking forward to making some connections with others – which is really what it is all about, for me.
