Just Doing It

As most artists say...."I have always painted or drawn as far back as I can remember". Art has been omnipresent in my life with memories of my mum doing oil paintings......oh the smell......or the mural she did at my Nan's house next door. I guess she is the one who initially introduced me to the art world......thanks mum!

At school I always wished we could do more art. At least at high school I could choose it as a subject....YES!

Unfortunately I really didn't know what I wanted to do upon finishing school and so art remained a hobby. I was asked to do paintings for a framer once who had done some work for me, however in my youth I didn't have the wisdom to see that this could have been a great opportunity......she didn't offer to pay much and I took AGES to do my paintings. Oh well.

Over the years I have done art workshops and classes with local professional artists to develop my skills. One of the best things I did was to take Folk Art Classes with my friend's mum. This was a fantastic way to learn brush control and techniques, use of mediums and just good for a laugh as well! Now I'm trying to loosen up my style. I have a very small studio and tend to work very tightly.

Inspiration for what I paint comes from my natural surroundings. We love to go camping and if you know Australia, you know that it's natural beauty is boundless, with the most unique creatures you'll see just about anywhere in the world!

I live on a half acre block on the Gorgeous Sunshine Coast about an hour from my hometown of Brisbane. We are surrounded by bushland and I regularly go walking for exercise, so my mind is always buzzing with ideas on these trips.

Having my daughter has given me the opportunity to try and earn a living from what I create by giving me the time at home to develop my ideas.

So, now I'm here, still painting and creating, but actually offering my works to those who love to buy art.
