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.

Stanthorpe Art Festival

I still haven't been able to get much painting done...my kids don't go back to school for another 2 weeks.  2009 was a very busy year...It was a bit of a 'blur'...I was 'flatout' 'non-stop' painting and preparing for my 1st solo exhibition....so I guess I do need to slow down and have a break.

But I do have some news to share....I've been lucky enough to have my artwork 'Damming the Creek', chosen for the 'Stanthorpe Arts Festival'.  There was over 1000 entries, so I'm pretty proud to be selected.  The opening night is Friday 26th February and it continues till 18 April 2010.
