My Husband and I visited Te Papa approximately 7 years ago and I got intrigued with some the wonderful art there. I arrived home and bought brush, canvas and paints and got to work, and really surprised myself. I didn't know what I was capable of and that's why I believe that everyone has hidden talents, it's just a matter of discovering them, so go forth and discover.
I put a spider's web somewhere on my canvas and that has now become a signature mark of my work.
I paint mainly in acrylics and get a lot of my inspiration from the beauty of our province.
