Training: I have been attending regular classes with acclaimed pastel artist Grace Paleg for about twelve years.
Other artists whose workshops I have attended include Margaret Evans, Leanne Crisp, Paul Margocsy, Ritchey Sealy, Joanne Barby, Nafisa Naomi, Lyn Mellady, Chris Blake, Amanda McClean, Louise Corke, Christine Clark and others.
Medium: My preferred medium and the one that I use almost exclusively is pastel. I have, however, tried oil and water colour in some of the workshops mentioned.
Styles: I enjoy painting still life, landscapes, seascapes and portraits.
Associations: I am a member of the South Coast Pastel Society Inc.
