Attended various workshops in South Africa in a variety of mediums and exhibited in South Africa before coming to New Zealand in 1997 and exhibited as a member of the Feilding Art Group till 2002. In Manawatu I held solo exhibitions and exhibited at the Manawatu Arts Awards. From 2002 to 2011 was as active member of the Estuary Arts Centre, Orewa and a regular exhibitor. Since retiring and moving to live permanently in Tairua, I have joined the local Tairua Art Group

While I work in all mediums, my favourite is watercolour, which enables me to attempt to capture the vibrancy of colour and light. Wherever I travel I have my paints on hand to capture the scene at that moment and work quickly in pen and wash. I am drawn to landscapes, especially seascapes and trying to capture the essence of the Coromandel. I also paint in acrylics and mixed media, focusing more on abstract landscapes.
