Art Education: Started with the Flying Art School in 1972 continuing with annual art seminars at Cooee Bay for 35 years with some of Australia’s best known Artists as tutors.
Exhibitions: Exhibiting in galleries throughout Queensland.
Interests: For 20 years I have been a volunteer for koala research in CQU. This affords opportunity for gathering images for my art work.

Art Education: Graduating from Queensland College of Art and Kelvin Grove Teachers College. Worked for some years as a Secondary Art teacher and then continued as a relief teacher before investing creative energies into children home life and art.

Interests: A love of gardening and open garden visits is a major inspiration. Strong shapes, the architecture and geometry of plants as well as bursts of colour found in nature always inspire.
