About the tutor

I am a mixed media landscape artist from Dolphin point, NSW. Teaching art classes and workshops from my studio/gallery in Leeton NSW was my life before moving to the coast in December 2019. I love the looseness and unpredictability of marks and experimenting with colour in layers. The diversity of the Australian landscape is inspiration for my work. I explore the landscape through experimenting loosely with mediums such as ink, pastel, charcoal, acrylic and collage.
