A former Graphic Designer, I have developed a good eye for design, form and colour and use this in telling stories through the subjects of teacups and portraits.
I have a deep interest in people and enjoy the challenge of capturing something of their personality in my depictions of them.
I also enjoy communicating my ideas and skills to others on a regular basis in Nambour where we have lots of fun in the process!
Am open to invitations to tutor ad to commission work and have been honoured with several 1st prizes for both my Portrait and Still Life work.
