I’m an emerging artist and draw my inspiration from this beautiful country, the folklore of our local mountains and the native bird life. Mainly working in acrylic and charcoal, I weave images of birds and other forms into the landscape for a fresh perspective, often creating a secondary element within the painting.
I loved drawing as a child and although I excelled in art at high school, chose to follow a different path in my education. Many years later as a ‘stay at home Mum’ I began to draw and paint again, attending evening classes and studying online with the College of Arts at Pennsylvania State University. I took part in the Pirongia Art Exhibition for several years running and the ‘All In’ Exhibition at the Wallace Gallery in Morrinsville.
2016 brought the opportunity to put more time into my art and set up a designated studio space, producing a range of limited edition prints alongside originals. In January 2017 I joined the Raglan Arts Weekend for the first time.
