About the Artist

"I paint because I do not know how not to!"
Painting is both an obsession and vocation
About the Artist

Connections

I am convinced there is a connection between painter and landscape that is emotionally intimate

About the Artist

My Inspiration

Growing up within the surrounds of the Clutha and now the Manawatu rivers mean water described gorges and plains are so much a part of who I am. Overwhelming light, skies, seasons, and landforms allow me enormous compositional scope.

Exhibitions

International Exhibitions include, Vancouver, (Canada), Missoula, (Montana), (supported in part by a Palmerston North City Council Creative Arts Grant) , and St Louis, (Illinois). as a result of her International Reputation she was awarded a Resident Artist Scholarship to Southern Illinois University in 2006.
