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.

Ron Mueck Exhibition-Gallery of Modern Art

Today I took my daughters to see the 'Ron Mueck' Exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane.  Wow!...absolutly fabulous!  These sculptures are so real.  We stood there staring at them...waiting... expecting them to move...they just looked so life like.  My daughters wanted to touch them...feel their skin (but of course they didn't)...they looked warm and alive.
