As a self-guided artist, I have been painting and drawing in the background of 35 years working in costume design and production, and in family life. My first group exhibition in 2016 marked the change in my career direction to explore and redevelop my skills as an individual emerging artist.
Moving between realism and a more impressionistic form, my earlier works used predominantly acrylic paints, then oil paints, inks and oil pastels and collage as I emphasised the textures and shapes in the details of nature and explored our transient journey through the landscape.
Currently I have been working with cold wax medium and oil paint to be able to apply multiple layers and textures and then excavate to reveal hidden colours.
I have been a finalist in the Waverley Art Prize and a two times finalist in the Greenway Art Prize.
In 2020, I presented a successful solo exhibition.
As a member of Drummoyne art Society, I regularly exhibit in their biannual exhibitions and also in my local Inner West area.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. I hope it stirs some of your own memories and feelings and allows you to connect with parts of your own stories.
