Beginning around the age of 45, I have been drawing and painting for 8 years and have tried the mediums of oil, acrylic and pastels. During that time most of my time has been spent in Ayr in North Qld and I have won a few prizes and sold a number of paintings through the annual Ayr Water Festival Art Exhibition hosted by the Burdekin Art Society. I have completed pastel portraits of my husband and children, all being happy with the result. And have done a number of paintings for extended family. I love to paint for the creative relaxation. It is also a great compliment when someone wants to purchase one of my paintings. I enjoy attending the Wednesday night group and sharing ideas and good company.
