For as long as I can remember, I have always loved art... I often get asked 'what inspires me?' When I was growing up...we made our own fun. We didn't go on expensive holidays or theme parks, our holidays were spent camping or we would rent an old 'beach' house and play on the muddy tidal flats, pumping yabbies for fishing. As a family we would go for Sunday drives....we might go for a bush walk, search under logs for 'critters', picnic in the middle of 'no where', or go for a cool swim in a rock pool in the mountains. When I first started painting, I mainly painted the beautiful places that my husband and I tavelled to on our many camping journerys. Now that I have my 2 beautiful girls...I am sharing the beauty of the outdoors with them, and they now feature quite often in my artwork. I have been told by many people, that my artwork brings back childhood memories for them, and I hope that my artwork reminds you of a special memory too.

Delivery Day 'Childscapes' Exhibition-Pine Rivers Art Gallery


Well, the day has finally arrived for delivery for my 'solo exhibition'. I was rather nervous this morning and felt a 'wee' bit sick in the stomach. You always wonder if you've got enough work...but when we started to unload the van, and I could see all the work in the gallery, I realised that 'all was fine'....it's going to look great! Now, it's just preparing for the opening night (Friday 28th August) and the 'artist talk' and 'afternoon tea' (Saturday 5th September)....and then I'm going to take a well earned break. It's been a busy 2 years preparing for this exhibition, myself and my family are going to take a week off to the beach.

  1. Looks very natural. I like Landscape Art very much. It will be very realistic.
