I have drawn and painted since childhood. I taught myself to paint using Arthur Mee encyclopaedias and visiting the famous paintings I loved as a child. I am a story teller; fairy tales leak into my artworks.
I have a beautiful old copy of Peg’s Fairy Book that was given to my mother when she was small. She coloured in the drawings and then let me do the same. It is now being coloured by the 4th generation of little girls. I paint using multi-mixed media and incorporate collage and assemblage.
I live in a shed on the only hill in Condobolin surrounded by an amazing dry land garden and lots of dogs. I create to make sense of the world and to make it more beautiful.
