Following a great interest in art over the years, I ﬁrst began to paint with a group in Airey’s Inlet. From there I joined the Emerald Hill Art Group in South Melbourne, meeting weekly, and also since 2016 with the Elgin Artists.
This is a happy, diverse, talented group of people with whom to be involved, and I enjoy all activities the group provides.
I have largely switched over to watercolour painting in the last three years, which I continue to pursue because it is such a challenge, and very much easier to use when travelling. I enjoy learning the diﬀerent processes to achieve a desired result - not always successful!
I have been inspired by the work of Amanda Hyatt, having been on four teaching/painting excursions with her, both overseas and within Australia. I look forward to my continued involvement with the Elgin Group, as we move into our new studio this year.
