I am a local artist and have been living at Beechwood for the past 8 years. I moved to the Mid North Coast from the Blue Mountains. I began my art journey in my mid 20s when I attended a sculpture class, and that was it, I loved it. I studied sculpture for the next few years under a great teacher and also started doing some painting. I studied fine arts at Western Sydney Tafe but did not complete the course but kept doing mainly painting. I work as a mental health nurse and counsellor and trained as an Art Therapist which has been so rewarding using with my clients. I love to paint the female figure and portraits which I think reflects my interest in people and their stories. I have been involved in some local group exhibitions which I have really enjoyed.
