Artist Bio

I have always enjoyed the challenge of creative pursuits.

In Sydney, Australia I attended the Julian Ashton Art School, the oldest art school in Australia. It was after this creative pursuit that I set a course for study in watercolor. My recent works are, again, the results of workshops, classes and my solo attempts using instructional books and videos.

I enjoy the completely absorbing, meditative quality of botanical painting. It is an antidote for me to the busy, noisy world we all live in; studying, growing, drawing and painting nourishes my soul.

While I enjoy the versatility of watercolor I continue to challenge myself in all mediums; graphite, acrylics, pastel, watercolor pencil and colored pencil works.
