I have been been artistically inclined since the age of 4, when I found my art heart. Its has been a love I never gave up, and it has been my lifeline. Because of my experience with mental illness and being self taught I agreed when it was suggested to becoming known as an outsider artist.
Although my work hasn't exactly fitted with whats expected in an outsider genre I think it is highly individual and I think my best have always come through inspiration with a touch of magic for which I thank my God. Also I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, for which I credit my recovery.
Encouraged by my husband I gained a Bachelor of arts degree later followed by a Honors year in 2008. I have a friendly personality, I've learned to cope with myself and my husband of 40 yrs now and of course have people who know me well, or get to know me. My work is a mixture of abstracts, landscapes and portraits which I love creating for creating sake. Abstracts, which have all sorts of subject's sometimes personal, my beliefs or feelings at the time, landscapes because of my surroundings and portraits both of which are created from observations.
For the past 5 yrs I have been able to paint full time, winning 6 consecutive awards in the Pyrenees and Wimmera Regions of Victoria Australia. My work has traveled far and wide to personal collections. I am well known by Mr Google, and you can find quite a lot about me through him.
