I love to create

I always have and I’m certain I always will. Sometimes I enjoy recreating what I see, other times the things I imagine and often a combination of the two. The important thing is that I am creating! I find a great sense of joy, peace and fulfillment when I’m making art. There’s also excitement as I finish one artwork and begin the next one, or two or three.

It’s impossible to limit myself with all of the wonderful materials available to artists these days. I use oils, acrylics, watercolours, coloured pencils, graphite and sometimes mix them together to create something different.

I love Jesus, my husband Andrew (an amazing photographer), and our teenage son (who’s growing into an inspiring young man).

We live in the city of Geelong, Australia.

I’m a current member of the Australian Society of Coloured Pencil Artists Inc.
