I have been painting since 2004. I have always been interested in art. I took classes from Maree Clarke who was instrumental in teaching me a lot about drawing and colour mixing. Her influence can still be seen in my work. She loved Rembrandt and the use of strong dark colours.
I also did part of a TAFE certificate in Visual Arts and Contemporary Craft.
In January 2012 I started the Art Appreciation Group in the Garden City library and continued to run it for five years. This group Is still going strong. I was also the RQAS Workshop Coordinator for one year.
My favourite medium is oil and I paint a wide variety of subjects.
