Artist Type Professional
Hi there, I am a professional artist and tutor living in the village of Tullimbar. I hold adult classes by the term in watercolour and acrylics. I have exhibited in local and interstate exhibitions and have sold works worldwide.
Although I paint a wide range of subject matter my preference is for modern impressionism. I paint in several mediums, oils, watercolour and acrylics. People, animals and coastal themes feature widely in my work and I love the play of light on a subject. I am inspired by the natural beauty of our coastal and country areas of the Illawarra yet am equally at home painting Tuscan and Venice scenes from my painting trips abroad.
I describe myself as an artist with no particular formal training. My expertise has been honed from a lifetime of drawing and painting living and breathing all things art. At the insistence of friends I began teaching classes in 2013 which has been a constant joy to me ever since. I hold classes and workshops in the Illawarra area and take painting tours to Europe. Educated at St Mary's Star of the Sea, Wollongong then worked in a decorating company. However, art was never far from my mind and in the 1990's opened a gallery at Jamberoo. A decade of selling my art at trade fairs in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Hobart followed where I gained invaluable business experience.
