Canaipa Point, watercolour

I loved to draw even as a child, but not thinking I was very good, I didn't pursue it in school.  So it wasn’t until 9 years ago that a friend of mine suggested we go to Southport Art School as she had always wanted to learn to draw.  She lasted a couple of weeks, me a couple of years.  I was smitten.

             ARTIST'S STATEMENT

 

People often say ‘Oh I can’t even draw a stick figure’.  I believe everyone has the ability to create.  It has just been squashed as we grew into adulthood.  If you have the desire, determination, instruction and time then you too could enjoy the satisfaction of creating art.

Five years ago, we moved to Russell Island and the first thing I noticed on the notice board was a sign for RICArts, offering a pastel workshop with Maxine Thompson.  Well I have never looked back.

It’s an artist’s heaven here on the islands.  Besides being surrounded with very paintable views, we have lots of artists to share ideas and to paint along with.

I started off in acrylics, moved on to oils and then pastels.  I am currently trying to conquer the very difficult art of watercolour.

I am very lucky to have such a supportive husband, who encourages me and never complains about the amount of money and time spent immersed in my passion.
