I’ve loved art since before I was born, being a 3rd generation artist in the family (as far as I’ve traced).

I live in Canberra, Australia, and paint anywhere I can. My husband Raymond and I love to travel, and when I’m not exploring some new place, I’m either in my art studio transferring my thoughts onto canvas or at the ASOC studio painting with fellow artists.

My AIM

As well as doing what I love to do:

I aim to create artworks that will inspire or bring joy to others and to encourage everyone to own at least one piece of quality original art that they love.  I grew up in Sydney and have attended many art workshops and tutorials and won numerous art awards, beginning with my first first prize at age 12. My current loves are painting abstracts, landscapes referencing the aerial viewpoint, and quirky figures, working with acrylic paint and mixed media. I plan to continue my visual art degree (final year on hold) but at present I’m busy painting and travelling. I am a former President and Vice President of the Artists Society of Canberra (ASOC) and am currently a member of the Tin Shed Art Group (TSAG) and the ASOC Contemporary painting group.
