“Since retiring as Head Teacher of English at St Mary’s College I have taken up my artistic work, for which there was little time when I was working full-time. I attended Wollongong TAFE in the sixties, when my children were small, studying under Ted Hall and Fred Bates. Since 2009 I have entered my works in many exhibitions, often being awarded prizes and highly commended citations. My work is based on either my travels or the Illawarra. I have spent a lot of time on watercolour and collage but have now moved to acrylic on canvas. The Illawarra is my inspiration as this is 'home’.”
