Tell us a lit­tle about your­self

Now I live in Forster on the NSW North Coast, af­ter liv­ing all my life on the land west of Bourke. Af­ter our two girls com­pleted pri­mary school by cor­re­spon­dence and went away to board­ing school, I started to dab­ble in paint go­ing from oils to wa­ter­colour and now acrylics.

De­scribe your style?

Lean­ing to con­tem­po­rary, my acrylics are loose and bright. I mainly paint land­scapes, but have splashed out with flo­ral and more re­cently have found the love of aeri­als.

What in­spires you?

The out­back, my aeri­als and the love of colour. I also get lots of in­spi­ra­tion from my trav­els.

How has your art evolved?

Mainly a self-taught artist, I experiment with tech­niques and colour. Con­fi­dence in my work has pushed it to de­velop & grow.

Why do you en­joy paint­ing?

Be­ing able to ex­press my­self on a blank can­vass, which can be daunt­ing. But once I ap­ply my first few brush strokes, I am in a cre­ative world. Each paint­ing is a chal­lenge. Not ev­ery one is a mas­ter piece, but it adds to the jour­ney.

Some high­lights of your artis­tic life?

When I won the Jack Mc­donogh schol­ar­ship at Mitchell School, Bathurst. Hav­ing both solo & group ex­hi­bi­tions. Any art­work sale is ex­cit­ing, but es­pe­cially when I hear from peo­ple who have pur­chased sev­eral.

What do you like about Toowoomba?

It’s beauty.

What is your dream goal or project?

To keep paint­ing, bring­ing colour & joy to oth­ers.
