My interest in art began during my teenage years when I began drawing charcoal portraits of popular film stars.


Unfortunately, my interest in art was side-tracked by my need to earn a living, and it wasn’t until many years later that I returned to my earlier passion.

In 2003, encouraged by local artist Pauline Adair, I took part in live drawing classes. The year after, I joined the weekly classes of the late art teacher, Arturo Xavier, whose coaching and encouragement provided the right environment for me to quickly improve my techniques in drawing and pastel. In 2007 I joined the workshops of Sunshine Coast artist Lizzie Connor. These weekly art classes gave me the opportunity to acquire skills in acrylic and fully identify with art.

In 2016 I became a member of Noosa Arts & Crafts and in 2018 I joined the Coolum Art Collective. Over the last few years I attended the workshops of Chris Postle, Noela Flack, Wendy Ebb, Peter Griffen, Trevor Purvis and Pam Taylor.
