The Artist

I love to paint portraits of animals and occasionally people in a variety of art media. My favourite mediums are pencils of all kinds, pastels, acrylics and watercolours. Sometimes I draw creatively. I also love making small textile dolls from scratch.

I live in coastal South West Victoria with my growing family. We have a Jack Russell, a crazy white Bull Terrier and a couple of lazy kitties.
