What makes me me? That’s a really tough question. I’ve had amazing experiences as a woman, a wife, a mother. I am a nurse, and a caregiver. I have felt life grow inside me, I’ve given life, I’ve saved lives. I’ve held the hand of the dying when they had no one. And, at the risk of sounding trite, I have learned through these experiences that the most important thing is to live for today. No regrets. No fears of tomorrow. Just embrace, and be thankful for the moment.

A personal set of paradoxes. Stillness – music; oceans – mountains, big skies – steep ravines; sun – moon; then there is my endless striving for an artist’s expression of what I observe and feel. I am getting old and am aware of how fast life rushes past. I love to sit and watch the elements from a centre of immense gratitude that I’ve been given this life.

I just love Art – I am excited by what is happening – the creative process, the ideas expressed by artists and political expressions. I am a humanist so my own artwork is figurative, expressive and emotional. I should say I come from a family of artists and designers and my husband is a painter. But I am a bit of a geek – I follow ideas in anthropology, archaeology, Australian History and politics and the environment. I am also a public servant in Canberra. We live in a bush city here so it is quite unique.

My humour, my neuroses, my big open face and heart.
inspired by Jessica Harby
I am dyslexic, I see the world in colours and pictures frozen moments in time, I feel peoples energy like waves on the sea washing over me, I feel truth & pain in a crowed room which overwhelms me. I am Fairy dust on the wind or broken glass. I am a tree with my roots in the ground but my leaves reaching for the next world. I am an old soul in a new body.

I’d say I’m constantly expanding my own sense of identity through coping with trauma, navigating a flux of environments, and developing personal relationships.
inspired by Waller Austin
Knowing what’s going on from newspapers, news, views, reviews and being confident in myself, and my view of the world from an artistic perspective and then I paint, Donald Trump sticking two fingers up to media, when he was running for president, Syrian refugees, big chief Joe Crow 102, R.I.P. Pinocchio drunk on k cider, it’s really my ex pal who stole my contract phone, got another phone, I also like drinking beer and smoking hash, although I’m against legalisation, also like going to the park which is beneficial.

What makes me -ME? I am merely a comment on all that ever was and all that will ever be. I am a part of this expanding universe as a creative being, guided by those before me to manifest a life of love, compassion and piece that may inspire those to follow.

I think like most artists I like to push at any parameters from time to time, to explore some new territory and surprise myself.

What makes me me….my love of teaching, teaching yoga and meditation to children, to the elderly, to those who suffer, to pregnant goddesses , changing lives through love, instilling love and confidence of ones body however it feels looks and reacts. If I can give a little every day I’ve done my work and I’m happy. Also What makes me me is all the love that I’m surrounded with from my children, my friends and my family feeling their love allows me to pass it on!

Gosh what a big question but I suppose it would be all the wonderful people, places, opportunities and experiences I have been lucky enough to have ….especially my family, pets and creativity.

I really don’t know what makes me me, maybe my upbringing, likes and dislikes, my individuality, my thoughts, on art and life! Or maybe my Zodiac sign, think all these things contribute!
