To learn more about my art appreciation journey, please read the blog about my story.

My aim  is to help make learning about art history easy and engaging.

With a love of both writing and art, it seemed logical to develop an e-course on Modern Art, and this blog contains short stories from the course.

As well as running my gallery, Kiama Art Gallery, I’ve been involved in a number of local art projects – I set up the regional arts trail, co-convened a major festival to celebrate iconic Australian artist Lloyd Rees on the South Coast of NSW in Australia, and co-managed another really interesting project to restore six large artworks painted by architectural students of Lloyd Rees in 1962 (pop over to the wordpress page for more info), served on the committee of our local arts society,  and I give lectures and talks on art history, and support local artists with advice and picture framing.

My writing covers the period from Romanticism through to Abstract art – with a focus on Paris between the early 19th Century and the mid 20th Century. Because of the level of research I undertake, this blog site is referenced by a number of educational institutions.

I look forward to your comments and feedback!

Next on the drawing board is a program about Australian Art History, and then Australian Women Modernists.
