I have recently moved to 2.5 acres at Bonny Hills on the NSW mid north coast from Sydney’s northern beaches. My favourite medium is pastel, and recently I’ve started using oils again. Other inspiration comes from holidays around Australia and overseas.
Original works are also for sale – please contact me by email if you are interested!

    “Cape Town to Cairo” the words of Cecil Rhodes, Terri, made me smile this morning, just visited his monument in Cape Town the other day. Dizzy from the heights. Must have been such a great holiday for your daughter. Unbelievable realistic oil painting, great skills and great artist you are. It has atmosphere and mood. Most wonderful light effects and the blues really make me want to be there. (My daughter does the marketing adventure tours, my husband works in Botswana). The link to the African beauty could not have been better painted and expressed! Congratulations to you from Christiane

  • Thank you very much Christiane! Erin had a wonderful time – she is quite a traveller, also having done 6 months around South America a couple of years ago with the same truck driver, Steve, who did Africa. She’s also backpacked around Europe & Thailand.
