The beauty of nature has inspired my work throughout my life, whether close to home or during my travels throughout Australia or overseas. I love the fleeting moments of light changing the landscape from the banal to unexpected beauty. My art has been a constant joy & challenge, I hope my work brings enjoyment to the viewer & makes them see the hidden moments of nature’s magic wand. Watercolour is my favourite medium.
