Growing up on a farm in Whanganui and then enjoying a career as a Veterinary Nurse means I have always had an interest in animals. I began to paint when recovering from a serious accident. Bedridden for months, I started with watercolours, and moved on to my present mediums of choice, oils and pastels.I paint in a realistic style using many layers to achieve depth and the finest of details. I get my greatest pleasure in painting birds and farm animals. I enjoy the challenge of starting with a blank canvas and bringing it to life, and I get my rewards as I achieve this.
