Since childhood I have always loved to draw and paint fruit and I used to copy the cherries on my mother’s tea cups. Many years later when I moved to the Macedon Ranges I joined the Botanical Art School of Melbourne where I learnt many technical drawing & water colour painting skills. I have conducted workshops there for many years as well as the Adelaide, Sydney, Canberra, Geelong & Canberra Botanical gardens as well as many regional areas. I really enjoy these painting workshops and recently have been conducting some corporate ‘bonding’ painting sessions which have been successful and a lot of fun.
