I am a self-taught artist living within the beautiful golden plains shire region on the outskirts of Ballarat.
As a young child, I grew up in the bush and was in love with creatures.
During these many hours outside interacting with the environment, I was able to observe and enjoy the endless combinations of colours in nature. I was constantly robbing my father’s office of printer paper when he wasn’t looking, so I could go off and sketch. Despite my love for art I ended up with a Commerce degree and went on to work in Melbourne CBD in a non-creative Accounting career for 20 odd years.
Finally, a few years ago my husband and I moved to seven acres of land nestled in rolling hills and surrounded by bush-land and native animals. I now have a dedicated space to pursue my passion. Finally, after all the lost years, I am producing finished artworks which to my absolute delight are now gracing the walls of peoples homes around Australia and as far away as San Diego CA.
My art has been described as striking, bold and at times, whimsical. I take inspiration from colourists and impressionists and delight in bold vibrant colours and moody atmospheric scenes with interesting lighting. I paint in two styles, realism and abstract/semi-abstract with colourist elements in both.
