I am a hobby artist and paint for relaxation and enjoyment. My preferred medium is water colour but I am not a purist and so a lot of my work I call 'mixed medium' because I will often start with water colour and if I cannot create the image I want on paper from my mind, I will incorporate other mediums to get the result I want. I recently joined the Royal Art Society of South Australia who have a fantastic collection of artists who inspire and support other artists. My tutor of 7 years Margaret Tuckey from Pepper Street Art Gallery SA is an exceptional teacher who has taught me various mediums and to believe in myself. I get great satisfaction giving pleasure to someone else from doing something I love!
