“I have a great love of the beach and water particularly in the tropics with many paintings representing places I have travelled to and loved. It is important to me that my work means something – a memory, a future place to visit or just a happy moment".
"I have spent time in both Cairns and Brisbane and now live in beautiful North Qld once again. Whilst enjoying art in high school, it was not until 2000 that I picked up a pencil and started drawing again. Art classes inspired a passion for painting although it remained a hobby in between full-time work and a busy family life. Life changes in 2014 opened up opportunities to scale back the working life and spend more time pursuing my painting."
