I am an Australian artist, born in Broken Hill, NSW but now living in Perth. My early artistic influence was watching my father working with leather to make belts, bags, saddles and more… The finishing touches of the intricate carved designs on each item were what interested me the most, and I spent many hours copying the designs, and drawing, painting and being creative in whatever ways I could.
Although I wanted to study graphic design when I left high school, I was encouraged to learn “something more reliable” so I did secretarial studies instead. However I never lost my love for art and enrolled in many courses, including oil painting, pottery, and drawing. I continued experimenting with art and developing my skills in the medium of watercolour which I came to love the most.
After many years of juggling office based work with my art, I finally took the plunge in 2013 to follow my dream of being a full-time Artist, and I now enjoy a very happy combination of painting for myself and teaching others to enjoy painting too.
