Painting was something that I stumbled upon later in life, after the realisation came that once you reach mid life, you can do whatever you choose to do, regardless of whether you ultimately prove to be successful … or not.

I built myself a studio on our Victorian property, and for the next 12 years painted in solitude, as I simply enjoyed the process of painting, and was quite content to paint just for my own private pleasure.

Becoming a member of CAAS and entering a painting in the Advocate Art Award was quite a quantum leap for me, however I find that I am actually enjoying the process and have discovered that mixing with other artists gives one both the inspiration and the motivation to move on (hopefully) to the next stage of the journey!
