lives in Redcliffe and works in Brisbane, Australia. As one of nine children
raised in the bush, she developed a deep interest in the mysterious

unity of all life.
described as a visionary artist, universal concepts and ideals
have inspired her paintings for over 20 years. Creative freedom
of thought and spiritual rhythm dominate the work. This underlying

describes her work, thus:
painting has its own passage in time. Much of the work achieved
has been flooded many times with washes; the image sometimes
lost, only to re-emerge through the veil constantly changing
and lending mystery to the surface - each baptism signifying
a new direction; the painting always dictating the next move.
aim is to create an entrance into another realm and bring
the observer into contact with their own sense of poetry;
to stimulate ideals and hopes through these impressions."
