I started painting after an illness which put me into bed for 2 years. I slowly recovered and went to an Enrichment TAFE course for 2 years. I so loved the art that I would come down and work on it all week before returning to do art the next week.
I then was encouraged to go to TAFE full time and do an Art course. I did this for one year which enabled me to apply to University with my Portfolio of Art. I was accepted into the College of Art, Morningside, Brisbane. Then the College moved to South Bank Brisbane to the University of South Brisbane, where Art was an offered as a subject. We were the first students in the brand new beautiful building.
I majored in Painting. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2004. Since then I have been painting and and exhibiting yearly with Visionaries Group, a group of artists specialising in Christian art.
I had my first solo major art exhibition in 2016. I worked hard for this exhibition, producing about 26 new art works.
