I am an artist and paint with a group in Bolwarra near Portland, Victoria, Australia.
We meet every Tuesday at 10am-12.30pm.Once a month from 10 3pm. I paint in all mediums and have just completed some Egyptian theme works, in oil.The local craft shop is having an exhibition in Portland soon and I plan to have my third exhibition in 2009, at the Portland Art centre. My motto is this work is never hard, its a challenge,
This will be my best work ever
thats the mind set.

We go on camps twice a year, just over the border into South Australia (about 3/4 hour away).My husband and I live in Bolwarra in a beautiful bushland setting with parrots wrens, kangaroos and koalas and echidna’s. I love the fish in my aquariums, tropical and cold water and cleaning up the bush and nurturing the native plants.We have two grown up children Maree and Andrew, married with two beautiful children, each having a boy and girl.
We have one very cute little dog called Rac she is very spoilt and a budgie.
We belong to the Lutheran church here in Portland and we take part in one of four bands in our church, I sing and my husband plays the guitar and mandolin.
We both write music. I love writing poetry when I am inspired.
We both are semi retired and teach religious education in four grades in two different schools under government Access Ministries.
