As a teenager I was always interested in languages and creative pursuits.

 

When the time came to choose, I enrolled in a BA followed by a Dip Ed in Modern Languages at Monash University, eventually becoming a certified translator and interpreter. 

Though never  having formally studied art, I managed to maintain some sort of multidisciplinary art practice throughout my life.  Mostly I worked as a batik and textile artist exhibiting my work in Melbourne and on the Sunshine Coast.

 

Less than 10 years ago I took a few art classes and started painting, mostly with acrylics.

Picasso rightly said :“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”
