I love the feeling of creating something from nothing. Whether that be a blank canvas , sheet of paper, piece of fabric, using objects in mixed media or the written form.  I discovered I loved creating very early as a child. I remember loving the magical quality of rubbing your pencil over the page and discovering the image underneath- something  which came to mind as I developed black & white prints in the photo lab in my twenties.

 

Growing up on a rice farm at Burraboi then later in Swan Hill I grew up absorbing the natural landscape around me.

 

Completing a Fine Art course at Bendigo CAE  allowed me to explore the 3 ‘P’s Painting, Printmaking & Photography. Early mentor,  Alan Walker, family friend & accomplished artist , helped inspire my love of landscape. I followed my art course with a Diploma of Education and entered the world of secondary art.

 

My highlight of teaching was with a group of art teachers under the head of Bruce Wilson.  I have always had a love

of books and bookmaking , combined with fabric art & silk painting. Love painting in many scales from very small with my encouragement books to very large mural works Designed a range of garments  which were soldthrough  Myers stores.

 

Have always continued to create  through the busy years of raising a family and have felt blessed to have travelled in Australia  and overseas.
