I’ve been creative my whole life. I remember as a girl of 8, dragging sheets of plywood from Dads garage up onto the roof of the shed and paint my heart out.
I am self-taught and only since having my children I’ve put brush to canvas, and more recently paper. I started in oil first and still enjoy very much the feel of working with the thick, smooth texture. I have always wanted to try watercolour because of the movement and have enjoyed creating a beautiful bird collection. I fell in love with the incredible colours and personalities of the native birds of New Zealand when I moved up here to Marlborough from further down the South Island. I had no idea the native birds were so special and so began my passion of painting them. In this collection I have tried to capture their personality with contrasting colours.
Presently I’m painting seascapes, borrowing from my local surroundings the beautiful Marlborough Sounds and enjoying being one of Return to Eden Galleries resident artists.
