I have enjoyed painting and drawing from an early age. However, work, study, career and family meant that it was not until the work/life balance was just  right could I indulge my passion for art.  

On retirement, my husband and I moved to Tumut, NSW, Australia – a very  picturesque area that is a magnet for many landscape artists. We created a 5 acre garden oasis and we continued an interest in aviation including flying  ourselves across most parts of Australia.  

It was my introduction to the Tumut Art Society that provided me with the opportunity to experiment with a number of mediums and attend a number of  workshops and courses.

I have discovered and learnt a lot along my art journey and now focus on  painting with my favourite mediums, oil and pastel, and often also use mixed  media when pleinair painting.

Flying ourselves all over Australia and living in the picturesque Tumut Valley has influenced my drive to capture the unique beauty of the Australian landscape, birds and flora.

I am passionate about continuing my art journey and exhibiting more artworks  in the future.
