Inspired by Zandra Rhodes' love of colour and textiles, I set up a clothing studio in Noosa in the early 80s.

Using hand painted cottons and silks I fashioned "art to wear" for individual clients.

My hand painted entry in the Sunshine Coast Fashion Awards in 1983 won first prize.

After a long absence I have taken up painting on canvas.

Living in such an inspiring environment there is no shortage of wonderful scenes to explore and capture. I find painting local beach and river scenes a rewarding pastime.

Disciplines learned while training in the clothing industry give balance and detail to my works.

My paintings offer me an opportunity to share this wonderful place with others whether they be holiday makers looking for a part of Noosa to take home, decorators refurbishing holiday apartments or locals wanting their favourite spots preserved forever on canvas.

I want my paintings to showcase the serenity and beauty that is Noosa Heads Queensland.
