Art has always been of interest to me. The art studio of which I am a member is called 'Arte on Yarra'. It is situated in the picturesque township of Warburton, Victoria, Australia. Our studio overlooks the Yarra River and mountains beyond, a constant source of inspiration for creative endeavours.

In the 1970's I worked in a gallery in Melbourne and was enthralled by the environment of paintings, sculpture and artists coming and going. I completed a course in sculpture at Prahran Technical College and painting at the Mitchell School of Creative Arts, Bathurst University.

I paint to convey feelings and the more mystical nature of our world, via colour, vibrancy, composition, and balance. I have never aimed for strict realism preferring a contemporary approach, being particularly drawn to colour and fascinated by its constant juxtaposition and changing tones within nature.

Painting in a studio with others provides a stimulating and supportive workplace. We often walk along the river with sketch book in hand and at other times venture forth with paints and easel. We encourage and critique each other's work in a positive manner with the intent of inspiring the highest good in all.
