About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Biloela, Central Queensland, Australia
Introduction I grew up in a family that was always doing something on the creative side from cooking to sewing and any craft. My first creations were done in Cake Decorating then moved into Patchwork. After doing a silk painting workshop I found that this complimented my patchwork as I could colour my fabrics with my paints allowing me to create many colourful creations in fabric. When folk art was the rage I attend lessons and enjoyed creating some lovely pieces for friends and family. When a friend who did lead lighting was in town I took some lessons from her and really enjoyed working with glass which also led to mosaics as you have left overs. With all this happening I felt I needed a little more help with the drawing side of creating a picture so attended the Roy Oorloff workshop as a start. Since then BAVA has been formed and I have enjoyed the lessons and workshops from talented local artists as well as doing workshops with tutors from afar. I’ve a long way to go but I really enjoy the atmosphere of being with creative people. There are many mediums in the world of art and I enjoy a few different ones and they all give me satisfaction when the job is finished.
