I have always loved plants, and water colour painting, it wasn’t until I moved to Tasmania in 2005 that I discovered Botanical Art at an adult education class run by Jennifer Wilkinson. After that I was sold!! 

I have continued to paint in watercolour, my favourite medium.I love trying to capture the essence of a plant or flower on paper, striving to appreciate and reproduce their special magic.

Each new project is deliciously exciting, the development of the painting on the paper can be totally surprising, despite many plans and much practice

My preferred medium is watercolour


Commenced classes in Botanical art with Jennifer Wilkinson through adult education, no previous training prior to this but a passion for plants and flowers, and a dabble in watercolour  

Have continued to paint and attend various workshops to present day
