My first step into the world of art was through a Community Education class in watercolour with Rowan Gardiner. Rowan's style of tutoring and his sense of humour suited me well and gave me a good start along with other tutors, particularly Julie Greig and Janet Kortlever. Watercolour is my favourite medium, but I have also produced work in pastel and gouache.
My subjects have been many and varied, initially favouring tractors and farming themes and I still enjoy painting these. I have also enjoyed painting trains, landscapes (particularly the colours of Australia) and music related subjects.
I paint every day with favourite loud music in the background.
