Occupation artist and teacher
Location Sydney, Australia
Introduction I have many passions, some are constant, some change. One that has always been there is a passion for art, but in different forms. When I was very young it was drawing and painting. Don't all children love to do that? Later came photography and then digital art and jewellery making. I suppose painting just stayed there. It keeps coming back! Reading fiction is another passion. But it is crime fiction, Scandinavian crime fiction, in particular 'crime noir" that is my current passion. However there have been periods in my life when I read nothing but the "classics". I re-read an old favourite, Jane Eyre last year and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. And finally, I mustn't forget my family. I am a proud wife, mother and grandmother. Little Matthew is now 4 years old and I love every minute I spend with him. And finally, the colour orange:)
