My story

Once upon a time there was a freckly girl from Wicklow in Ireland who smiled a lot. She had 4 fun loving siblings and the most loving parents. Her favourite classes at school were long distance running, art and music. As well as being creative she dreamed of exploring the world and travelling. She often made cubbies and pretended to be on a train travelling somewhere with her doll Janey… 40 years later I’m still that Irish girl from Wicklow now living in Adelaide South Australia with my German husband and 3 teenagers. As well as working in Aged Care I have been lucky enough to persue my passion of painting, printmaking and creating over the last 20 years. I still love to sing; in the bathroom where the acoustics are best and love putting on my runners to go for a run around the block. Seize the day!
