Art for me is “ joie de vivre”! I love using mixed media with the textures of hand made paper in my paintings and often include flowers which reflect my botanical background. My paintings reflect the joy of life and I hope make people happy when they look at them.
I am largely a self-taught artist. I have attended three art schools at USQ, two in acrylic painting, the other in paper making. I have attended a range of workshops and have been a member of various art groups.
My painting is a hobby, but I have had a business in producing interpretation materials (eg signs for interpretation trails and brochures), undertaking both the writing and graphic design of projects.
I like to explore a range of mediums. I call my paintings “soul paintings” as the inspiration mostly comes from within. Currently my painting is influenced by the wonderful abundance of nature, fertility and the freedom to let go and enjoy the moment.
My first exhibition was at Rosalie Gallery in August 2013. I have an exhibition of portraits and stories called “Faces of Ravensbourne” in Aug 2018
