About Me

grained-portrait So, what do you really need to know about me?

Well, I live in sunny, sometimes stinking hot Perth, Western Australia. I haven’t travelled all that much but whilst I love visiting new places, this place is my place; it’s where I’m meant to be.

I have worked and played as a Primary and Secondary Art teacher for the past 22 years, which I am pleased to say truly was my calling. I have never doubted that teaching is what I was meant to do. However, until recently I have never had the confidence to call myself an artist. I’m still emerging in this arena but an internal passion and need to create and express has shifted my view of who and what I am.

I am an artist.

I’m also totally impulsive, impatient, temperamental and quite often irrational but on the upside, I think I’m a good listener, loyal friend and capable of a lot of love. I know I am bloody hard work, a bit crazy and I mess up a lot but apparently I’m worth it to my chosen few.

And who might these lucky people be?   My heart and soul, Chloe and Jak, who truly are my living and breathing masterpieces;  my simply amazing brother; and a core group of friends who give me strength, conscience, inspiration, love and understanding.

Could I ask for more? I don’t think so. I am a very lucky ‘girl’!

    Well, now that I have read your blog I take back that I thought your note forlorn. Rather, it has a tone of reflection. The blog is a way for you to reflect in writing on your current journey. Some do it in a jounal. Others blog. And now you do to. It doesn’t surprise me that you choose this vehicle to do so.

    And I have always considered you to be ‘an artist”.

    And my friend.

    Well I must say you have some fantastic art, and believe me as one of your “ex”( I still learn from you so Im still a student) students, I can positively say that yes your were meant to be a teacher, you have a way of getting the most out of every student who walks through your doors,You taught me how to harness the “artist” within and thanks to you I certainly do try to do that.
    I have to agree with Sam, I too have always thought of you as an “artist”.
