Born in Australia, now living in Ithaca Greece.
As long as I can remember I've been painting & drawing. Loved doing cartoons but soon grew out of that. I would do your usual Mikey Mouse & Donald Duck just to pass the time. Going on drives on the weekend, I would get bored so I would always have a pad & pencil & draw the mountains etc. My wish was to do fine arts, but leaving everything to the last minute all the positions were taken, so it was suggested I choose something else & leave it for the next year , so I decided on Interior designing, big mistake, I continued for three years . My heart though was always in fine arts.
I would draw & paint on & off for many years, always being pushed by family & friends. There was always something else to do , & not having confidence, I left my passion & just did afew little things, painting T.Shirts,Rocks etc. Coming to Greece & living on an Island you can't help but want to paint, so here I am painting the beautiful Island of Ithaca. The colours & the beauty of Ithaca is what gives me my inspiration. When I'm painting I feel alive & just wish there were more hours in the day.
Last year I had my first exhibition, again being pushed by family & friends. All I wanted to do was hide , but to my surprise I sold 6 paintings, & this has given me the confidence to show my work, & sell.
