Painting Oil, Acrylic, Pastel

I have drawn and painted most of my life, attending acrylic and watercolour classes in Yorkshire, where I exhibited and sold some of my paintings.

I lived in South Africa for 25 years but most of this time was taken bringing up my children and I didn't find much time to paint.  On my move to Kerikeri I started attending classes with Mike Nettman in a search to progress and challenge my painting style.  I am attracted to the mix of abstract and realism and recently my paintings have demonstrated this.  My subjects vary but recently my inspiration has been animals from South Africa.
