Hi I’m an self taught Artist living on the on the River on the beautiful Sunshine Coast after living in back in Melbourne for a few years where I decided to concentrate on painting which I loved from a very early age. I won Highly commended for a pic I did called “My Mother “ at Royal Melbourne
Show in grade1 & couldn’t speak English due to immigrating from Communist Poland .

I did workshops with many prominent artists at Malvern ArtSociety ,Brighton Art Society& Seniors Art Supplies Malvern almost full time while my husband was away with work. I have sold work In Melbourne & Brisbane .


I enjoy watercolour the fluidness of this medium is always different & challenging.Acrylic painting is another as it opens so many options to creativity through paint, pens&collage etc . I’ve started in water based oils which I’m still getting to know .

More About Me

After having a Gallery & Art Studio in Sunshine Cove, doing Paint & Sip , children’s classes one on one & enjoying “Open Studio’s “ I had an accidental fall injuring my leg so on advice of Orthopaedics had to very sadly give up lessons & the Gallery .

I’m still painting in my home on the beautiful Maroochydore River, but not at the same pace I did before. What is a life with out painting to an artist !!!
