As I was a Member of The Australian Society Of Marine Painters, I Was recently invited  With nine other women as ‘Artists In Residence’ on the Heritage Fleet At Rozelle Bay – The Exhibition was shown between decks on The ‘James Craig at Wharf 7, Pyrmont Bay.

I had the honour of being awarded ‘The President’s Medal’ for my painting of  ‘The John Oxley – Full Frontal’ as shown here.

Boats bob about and I capture them in paint before the wind turns them around or before they sail away.  I really paint boats so that I can paint their reflections.

I have just painted my first ’Artist’s Book’  with the International Fleet Review as the theme. Very enjoyable to paint it after sitting in the rain watching it. Cannot do it justice as a photograph.
