I joined Elgin Artists in 2012. Since that time we have ventured together overseas to France, India and Japan, exploring and painting. Each person paints and draws in their own style, enjoying the inspiration and encouragement we get from one another. The group has also painted en plein air within Victoria and has taken excursions to galleries in Melbourne and regionally. We participated in nine Life Drawing Lessons in 2018 with Michelle Zuccolo but normally we paint without a teacher. I participated in Regina Hona’s workshops in Sicily, Greece and Adelaide in 2017/18. I paint en plain air and in a studio.
Workshops Marion East (oil) Warren Curry (oil). Andrew Gemmill (watercolor), Charlotte Thodey (acrylic), Helen Gauchat (acrylic), Michelle Zuccolo (Life Drawing), Regina Hona (pastel, pen and wash).
