Tell us a little about yourself using a Haiku.

Art for me is joy

Big fun abstract loud crazy

Fluid expression   (Hopefully fluid is two syllables…LOL)

Tell us a little about the origins of your artwork.
For many years I designed greeting cards then moved that work onto canvas.
Describe your creative process.
My latest love is working on a big canvas with acrylic paints and  resin .
Resin without a doubt is the messiest medium to work with,  and requires perfect weather conditions, not too cold, not too hot.
And an ultra clean area, no fluff, fur or bugs.
I will always begin with a colour combinations and from there it just seems to happen.
What inspires you the most?
Colour, always colour.  
Name some of your most favourite local artists and designers.
I love local  watercolour artists Amanda Hyatt and  Robyn Kitterley Redman.  And the eclectic  “Run Wild Horses” and “Annette’s Art  Alchemy”
And of course “Bonniebix shortbreads. All found on Facebook.  Please go friend them
What are your ultimate dreams for your work?
Long time dream is to have a shop where I can display on the walls and work on several tables without having to pack up.
What will will we find from you at our September Bend and Snap Market?
Resin/acrylic canvas work, Star books, Treasure boxes and maybe even a coffee table.  Then a  little mixed media framed stuff.

Hopefully something different that  will make you want to talk.
