I describe myself as an artist with no particular formal training. My expertise has been honed from a lifetime of drawing and painting living and breathing all things art. At the insistence of friends I began teaching classes in 2013 which has been a constant joy to me ever since. I hold classes and workshops in the Illawarra area and take painting tours to Europe. Educated at St Mary’s Star of the Sea, Wollongong then worked in a decorating company. However, art was never far from my mind and in the 1990’s opened a gallery at Jamberoo. A decade of selling my art at trade fairs in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Hobart followed where I gained invaluable business experience.
