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.

I know I say the same thing all the time, but it always amazes me that, from all the entries, the public chooses mine as 'best of show'.

  4. Thanks Chris...and thanks for your vote for the Peoples choice at Maleny! I always feel its the best one to win...the most important...because, the public are the ones that keep us going...buy our work and support us.
    Competitions are really hard. I'm never confident...it still comes down to the judges own personal taste...or how he or she paints.
    Thank you so much for following my blog...I'm looking forward to viewing your beautiful creations also.
