About Me

My photo
‘Painting for me is the freedom to create and there is always something new to learn. Mistakes made, usually turn out to be the best part of the painting because it is unexpected. Never let yourself get bored.’

Hanging With My Bro (Jo)


Acrylic, Ink, Collage, Oil Pastel, Charcoal, Pen, on Ply

This painting shows the joy, laughter and playfulness of children. The girls are seen hanging upside down looking puppet-like, entertaining their baby brother. They shower him with small collage flowers representing spring, new life, and nature.


Mick & Ferno

 Acrylic, Ink, Collage, Oil, Charcoal on Ply

Companionship comes in many forms.

My brother recently befriended a young rooster named Ferno. When visiting my older brother, Ferno followed up to the house and made himself right at home. I had to capture this unlikely friendship within a painting.

Dry Times: Watering The Lawn 2006

One of my favourites that I have kept for our wall.

In the dry of 2006, our lawn was very hot and crispy. Strict water regulations were set therefore the only time anything got watered was if our dog lifted his leg on it.

The Annual Walk of Inspiration 2010 Charity Auction

Each year my brother organises a charity walk through the Integrated Martial Arts Club. This fundraiser is held on the beach at Hervey Bay to raise money for the Humanity Healing Foundation. After the walk there is an auction of donated goods to also raise funds. I donated a drawing for this auction & hope to do so each year. All up, the walk & auction went well with fantastic local support. A great day!!

Jallas Cafe

I have a whole wall to display my paintings at Jalla's Cafe at Woodford. Great little cafe - yummy food & live entertainment from 1pm on Saturdays. I went in early Friday morning with a ute load of paintings to hang (with help thank goodness) a 5 1/2 month old and a 2 year old. It was a bit of a juggle but it all went smoothly (probably took twice as long as it normally would..ha!). I think that they will be there for 6 weeks, I have to double check on that - it will be great to get some feedback and even better if it encourages sales!!

Back Again!

I disappeared for a while, all for a good reason. I created for the second time, my most rewarding and precious masterpiece I could ever imagine creating...my 2nd little baby girl....Indigo. I have been very busy learning to juggle two beautiful little girls along with the normalities of day to day duties as well as the busy festive season. I still have not touched on any painting since getting home from the hospital in October. I did sketch up a picture from a photograph of my first child while in hospital but nothing since then.
I have a photo of me painting for the Woodford Art Competition a week before giving birth. I finished it just in time... whew! Thank you to my wonderful friends and family that ran around for me to frame and deliver it to and from the show while I was in hospital.

2010 WILL be a creative year...a slow start but I know I will build up momentum and inspiration as the year progresses (and when I feel a little less sleep deprived)  - my 2 year old is putting me to shame at the moment and getting more art completed than her mother... ha!

Lovers Embrace in Dioxazine Wilderness

Acrylic on Canvas

Girl with Red Rose / Fire In Her Hair; Water In Her Veins


Acrylic/Pencil/Sand on Canvas Board (Sold)

Small Gatherings/Meaningful Collections

Acrylic/Ink on Canvas
I entered this painting into the Hervey Bay Annual Art Exhibition, where it sold. Must admit this was a bittersweet moment as it was a personal favourite. Now, I have a big empty space on my wall to remind me what I have loved and lost. I will use that space as an incentive to paint something that I will love even more.. ha. I guess each painting is a little piece of you and it is sometimes hard to part with .

Tropical Calm I & II

Acrylic on Canvas.
Two paintings that complement each other from my earlier collection.

Afternoon Fruit

Acrylic on Canvas

In The Shed - Mondure

Acrylic/Ink/Mixed Media on Canvas

Red Dirt - Farrers Road

Acrylic on Canvas
Part of a farm series. This is a home favourite which hangs on our wall. Although my parents have retired off the farm, it is a lovely reminder of part of the red dirt country where I grew up. It is currently on loan for the public to view at the Woodford Library.

Turakina Baches

Acrylic/Ink/Mixed Media on Canvas (Tryptich)
This painting was from our travels to New Zealand. North Island Turakina - a colourful row of baches (beach houses) full of personality. I made the painting into a tryptich. I had plenty of offers to buy just the 'sky' piece or the 'grass' piece. I ended up with a commission for a similar 'grass' canvas when it showed at the group exhibition 'Rites of Recognition'. Which now resides in Coffs Harbour N.S.W. 
The original painting has a new home in Brisbane QLD.
