I have been painting for as long as I can remember. I'm mainly self-taught, but have attended a lot of painting classes and seminars. My paintings have been sold in Australia – New Zealand – Denmark – USA. I emigrated from Denmark to Australia in 1974 with husband and two children. It was hard to find time to paint due to work and family, but I did find the time. I'm able to see the funny side in almost everything – love to study people and cats – which shows in my figurative work. I've now started to make jewellery necklaces (all one off). A day without creating something is a waste in my book.
