I'm a professional artist, qualified art therapist and I enjoy teaching art locally.
The Luck Of The IrishI was born in Kilkenny, Ireland and studied extensively at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. After emigrating to Australia in 1982, I continued my studies at the East Sydney Technical College.
I now call Port Macquarie, NSW, on the mid-north-coast home.
Art Therapy & TeachingIt is here that I embraces all my talents such as teaching using art as a therapy for people with dementia and mental health issues and teaching privately on a one to one basis and group sessions.
My Medium of ChoiceUsing mostly acrylic on canvas is my medium of choice, I use layers of colour, texture and design to convey layers of meaning. I hope my paintings invite you into their very core.
"The experience and process of creating is as important as the finished work. I want to grasp the true essence of my subject. Creating involves immersing myself in the journey rather than focussing on the destination. The journey is not always easy."
Art GalleriesI have been lucky enough to be well represented in Australian regional/local galleries including
The Glasshouse Port Macquarie
Manning Regional Gallery
The Artist Market In The Vines
She has received accolades for her work since early childhood. My paintings are represented in private collections, both in Australia and overseas.
