Tell us about yourself in 50 words or less.
From a very young age I had always known I had a love of drawing, painting, and art in general. Art was put on hold for many years while I brought my family up and then joined the workforce. Time was always an issue and as you most probably know, however, the right time eventually arrived. I retired! Making up for lost time I have continually painted every day for the last 3 years in my little corner of the lounge, eventually finding my love in oil paints, portraiture being my No1. I have found my niche in life……. I hope you love my work. My passion is on my canvases!

Who is your favourite artist (living or deceased!)?
Rembrandt. The old Masters. From an early age I was taken to the Art Gallery and educated in the arts.

What were your reasons for joining Arts Canterbury?
I joined Arts Canterbury as I had heard of the amazing friendship and fellowship of the artists who were members. This was the best thing I have ever done. I have not been disappointed.

What are three goals for your art this year?
My three things for this year are to improve on my skills with practice, loosen up my painting and learn from others.

Describe your favourite piece of art you have created – and why it’s your favourite.
My favourite piece was Bella with Violin. She touched my heart so much and ended up feeling part of my family. Dina a close second!

Anything else you want to tell us - funny story, about yourself or your art?
My Mother always told me I was a late developer, and to always count to 10 before I did anything….. she was right! So that’s me! Lol.
