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 continue 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, attend a number of workshops and courses, and to develop skills in the tactile medium of felting.
I have discovered and learnt a lot along my art journey and have been influenced by a number of people with a similar passion and drive to create artworks that relate to anything and everything in the world in which we live. I love to immerse myself in painting with my favourite mediums oils and pastels, as well as the development of felted artworks.
I am passionate about continuing my art journey and exhibiting more artworks in the future.
