Flipping my dna
The turn ... away from IT to ART
Just over five (5) years ago I was challenged: are you going to be an emerging artist for ever? Or What! “Well heck no,” I thought. I said, “What. How do I not do that ” Since that moment I’ve let my long-held belief, that creativity affects individual and
community experiences and expectations – for the better, lead the way to an unknown future.

FLIPPING IN 5 YEAR STEPS SLOW DRAMATIC CHANGES
From the moment I walked into a classroom in a University of WA Summer School in watercolour I knew this is where I belonged. That was 1995. It wasn’t until 2015 that I was challenged to make a decision. Who was I. Artist or not?

Life and Its Impact

A Standout Year!
where am i now
With more time at home and less distractions I set myself a few goals.
- work on my artistic style and processes.
- improve how I see what I see. Remembering that reflecting reality is not my calling.
- push my imagination of my world.
- continue to capture my impressions on my wonderful part of the world!
Everything is Possible!
Retiring, moving to Postcode 4677, living in a creative community in wonderful Central Queensland was the stimulus that let accept the challenge. Photography and painting is limited by my disabilities but they also give hope. Creating a collection of images of the unique, the ordinary and the transient is a great way, I’ve found, to embrace the future.

BRAVE PLANS ARE UNDER WAY
to show what a retired, emerged artist does with all her time. I am brave enough, I think, to show my dazzling primal works, with forms and colours screaming emotion and action. Sometimes childlike images with simplicity and order; clarity and harmony – or not!
I like to explore artists and art. Abex (coursera course), Rothko and Yayoi Kusama (GOMA), local workshops and the Gladstone region art communities have all played their part in getting me here.
