Prior to painting I was teaching children, a career that allowed me to be creative and imaginative whilst teaching the children in my care. After having my own children, my love affair with painting began. Studying art whilst raising my children, I found artists teaching short courses to learn from. My whimsical style developed over the next few years and I haven’t looked back.

My inspirations continue to evolve however I do have a few core influences that will always have an effect on me. My children, my passion for colour, fabrics and ever changing fashion and design are a common thread through the span of my painting career, this keeps evolving and building. I am constantly searching for new forms of mixed media to put on to canvas and exploring new ideas and topics.

As part of my continually developing style I have created new works involving moulded resin discs set on a framed metal background. These pieces are unique, colourful and structurally diverse creating individual original pieces of sculptured art. It’s like a big science experiment for me watching the new reactions that happen using the inks in the resin.

I have been painting now for many years, have entered and been successful in a number of exhibitions and am represented by a few high profile galleries.

I have been published in Coast magazine, Home Beautiful, Melbourne Weekly and local papers.
