I have enjoyed painting and sketching all my life but only did it part-time, due to professional commitments, until I retired in 2002. So then I got stuck into it while travelling including patchwork and embroidery. All three being effectively done while out camping or exploring this big wild world of ours. My husband and I regularly spend 3 to 4 months away in the ‘bush somewhere – South West Coast, Kimberley or overseas. So inspirations come from everywhere. I have been a member of the Wannero Joondalup Art Society in Western Australia for many years and regularly exhibit in the Bi-Annual Exhibitions. Selling some and winning the odd prize. I studied at the Perth Tech, Claremont School of Art and various professional artists, currently studying under the guidance of Jana Vodesil-Baruffi (Black Swan Portrait Winner 2018). I am currently doing most of my paintings with pallet knife and with a limited selection of just 3 oil colours plus black and white to achieve what I want. This is quite a challenging process but very rewarding – understanding the science of colour and colour mixing. Other mediums I have dabbled in are Watercolours, Pastels, Acrylics and throughout various courses: Sculpture, Printmaking & Jewellery.
