My first art training was a major in Visual Arts for a Bachelor of Arts maybe in the
1970s. This sparked my love of art history and travel to visit many galleries. Then,
after many, many years - in 2011, I returned to art under the guidance of John
Garde, a Western Australian artist. Since I am a keen gardener, my preference is for
botanical art. Mostly I draw with just graphite pencils, but occasionally I paint with oils
or acrylics and I also love photography.
