Style

I am interested in community work, and commission work.

I started using oils in my early portrait painting days, then tried my hand at different styles using acrylics and watercolor. Later I tried pastel and charcoal. My work includes bush scenes to portraits, and covers many styles, bright colorful paintings to my blue and purple collections

Biography

I started my art career over 25 years ago in Broken Hill. painting along side my mum and sister. Later I attended Tafe to further my art studies wih Clark Barrett, Joyce Condon and Geoff De Main. I also attended recreational drawing lessons in Charles Sturt University with Bob Groves. I have been involved in many art exhibitions and events in Broken Hill, and now South Australia where I currently reside. I have exhibited in many Lifeline Art Shows and Broken Hill Art Shows. Over the years I've supported many chariities such as Red Cross, Cancer Council SA and the NSW Drought Appeal. I'm hoping to have a solo exhibition next year.
