I have been a photographer for the last 10 years. I started taking photo's of everything that caught my eye mainly landscapes and objects. But I quickly turned to portrait photography and found this is what I meant to be doing. Today I photography people of all ages in my home studio or out on location. My style is timeless to fine art.
I have painted in watercolour for the last 17 years, winning a number of awards in exhibitions around the state. My paintings have ended up in countries such as USA,England Europe, Asia, and also throughout Australia.

I am a self taught artist starting in pencil and charcoal and moving on to be proficient in soft pastel, oil paints and colour pencil. I have also attending numerous workshops especially with Robyn Kittelty Redman where I learned of colour mixing, composition and other techniques.
I hold a major in drawing and ceramics but have extended that to include painting, mosaic, papermaking, bookbinding and 3D garden art. Over the years I have had solo and joint exhibits of work from most of my disciplines. I have enjoyed teaching art and have worked as an 'artist in residence' in prisons, schools and the general community.
I specialise in limestone but also calve many different types of stone,I began calving limestone over ten years ago and haven't looked back, its a medium I just love working with, starting with a ordinary block and finishing with a sculpture that slowly evolves in to a work of art.
