Where do I start to list what influences me…

From an early age I fell in love with Snuggle Pot and Cuddle Pie by May Gibbs. It caught my eye and heart in such a way that I knew I wanted to draw and paint for the rest of my life.

Japanese textiles

“Fractured Summer” – Acrylic and ink on canvas, cropped.

Textiles and Quilting. In particular Japanese textiles. I often make trips to Melbourne to buy more for a rainy day. And I find that sometimes my art is like my quilting style and I can make a painting based on a quilt I have made.

A walk in the botanical gardens never fails to inspire.

Australian artists such as Richard Dunlop, Michelle Breton, Rosetta Santucci, Sarah Dunlop and Emma Walker… just to name a few.

“Dune Litter” – acrylic and ink on wooden panel.

Beach combing with my kids. Picking up treasures that I find on the ground in the sand dunes can inspire me to paint madly for a week.
