[dropcap]From[/dropcap] the age of 11 years old I was painting in oils and by my mid-twenties had taken a creative writing course. These two interests coupled with the use of photography and my ongoing curiosity for exploring all things relating to the environment drove my passion for further creative exploits. Oil painting, writing, self-publishing and gardening have been my main interests since turning 70.
In the last twenty years I have exhibited several times as a solo artist and with other artists in the Blue Mountains . My recent works, mainly landscapes and seascapes, have been chosen from all our Australian States and Territories. I’m in the process of painting some works from the Barrington Tops area of NSW.
