Biography

My childhood days unfolded in the West Australian country seaside town of Albany. My dad drew with my sister and me and took us on drawing trips on the weekend and out collecting beetles, insects and butterflies which we classified, set and displayed. My mother enriched me with her beautiful sense of aesthetics. She could find beauty in just about anything. She has a strong affinity with sea and the ocean, her mother lived in a lighthouse as a young child, with her father, a harbour master. I grew up listening to my mother's Don McLean and Cat Stephens homemade tapes and have vivid memories of the Vincent ode 'starry, starry night' drifting through our house. I am a teacher, have been a principal and in the past run a bed and breakfast in the ancient mountains of the Porongurups. I live a very busy and full life and am now enjoying investing more time in my art.

Artist Statement

My art evolves from a strong connection to the earth, the rhythms of the oceans, the beauty of the Australian landscape and my own imaginings.
