Henri Matisse said, “Creativity takes courage,” and Thomas Merton said that “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
Be brave. Face your fear and just start.
Currently, I am busy creating artwork for my 2021 Solo Exhibition at Bunbury Regional Art Gallery, Though the Streets and Other Adventures, due to be held from August to October.
There will be workshops available for high school students during this time. If you or your school are interested, please contact BRAG.

I found your art lessons very inspiring. You introduced us to a variety of media and styles and encouraged us to ‘have a go.’ You gave me the confidence to start painting and to branch out and try new things. You were always very encouraging and appreciated each student’s individual style and personality. You took some of us out of our comfort zone and challenged us to think ‘out of the box.’
Many, many thanks.
