  • Artist’s Statement

    Using watercolour for me is as much as about the pigments as it is about the interaction and movement of water. I love the fluidity of watercolour and how wonderfully diverse it is. 

  • Biography

    I started painting by doing watercolour classes and fell in love with this medium.
    Following classes and fitting painting in between a busy life raising four children, I started exhibiting. 
    First at the MET gallery in Highfields, then the Hampton Food and Wine Festival, by invitation to Downlands, the Toowoomba Art Society Spring Exhibition and in the gallery space at Murray’s Art & Framing. I’ve previously sold works at this exhibition and am delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit again.

  • Influences

    I enjoy impressionist works but take influences from all areas of life - nature, artworks, materials, colours and emotions.
