I live in Chittaway Bay a little town about one hour north of Sydney, we have the best as our village is part of the scenic Central Coast region. We have the Ocean with many beaches and rolling green hills and farmland along with cafe's,shopping malls and tourist attractions , its a great place to stay, we also have easy access to Sydney and Newcastle.
I work as a Financial Planning Practice Manager but have always loved to paint and draw but like many got busy with life and forgot all about my passion for art, then about six years ago after many many years of not drawing or painting my husband bought me a brush, acrylic paints,& one canvas...from then on I have painted whenever my soul says get going, when ideas pop into my mind and I can see the finished painting..... mostly ocean scenes but this year I have begun to paint landscapes and find that I love doing that, I always liked drawing trees as a child so now I am learning how to paint them as I go along.
I hope you enjoy my paintings as I do.
I am untrained and just paint form the spirit and the heart, so any constructive advice will always be welcome.
