Primarily I am a watercolour artist living in on a farm in regional Victoria (South Gippsland). After a career in human services and education professions I began painting in 1992 and more recently extended this to include painting with earth pigments, creating of haikus, haigas, and drawing. In 2008 I established an arts based practice as an Artist, Teacher and Creative Arts Therapist. I continued my arts education by participating in workshops and classes in watercolour painting, in drawing and print making. I have memberships with VAS, AGRA, WSV, and BCAS and have participated in exhibitions with VAS and AGRA and in addition have had 11 solo, 2 joint, and 10 group art shows. Throughout my art pursuits I participated in a number of Rotary, corporate, and Shire art shows and have been the recipient of awards including firsts, high commendations and commendations for watercolours and was a finalists in 2019, and 2020 with the Australian Watercolour Muster. Artworks are represented in commercial, corporate and private collections in Australia, New Zealand, France, UK and USA. My practice is based at studio and gallery 'ArtworkStudio757' @ Roseda farm, Fish Creek, Victoria, Australia.
