Welcome Spider and Critter Lovers!
I hope you like spiders and critters! My website is full of them. Well, except for the painting classes page (I don’t want to frighten off potential students)! I find spiders in particular rather fascinating, and have done since I was a child. Did you ever have story books about the little creatures that live in your garden? Did those books have amazing pictures of spiders and beetles and butterflies with their families, making homes in mushrooms, and having conversations with one another? I had a number of those books. It was a lovely fantasy world to live in.
As a grown-up, I still find the “little” world fascinating, and recently discovered that there are more arachnids in the world than just redbacks and tarantulas! There are orb spiders, and jumping spiders, and peacock spiders, and…. the list goes on. I am on a mission now to learn more about the amazing world of spiders, and one of the best ways is for me to paint them.
Are you a crazy spider enthusiast like me? Don’t you think they’re fascinating? They each have their own personalities just like humans, and they each live differently, eat differently and even mate differently! If you are just as fascinated about them as I am, then why not join me on my journey of spider discovery? Maybe you’d like to have one of my originals on your wall? It would definitely be a talking point with your friends and family! Keep an eye out for my new paintings, and subscribe to my newsletter to be updated with my latest news which includes paintings for sale, and information about my classes and exhibitions.
A Little Bit About Me
Art has always been an important part of my life, and watercolor is my preferred medium. It is amazing at how much you can do with watercolour and how much more undiscovered territory there is with this medium!
I regularly exhibit and sell original works, have received numerous commissions, and have my artwork in private homes around the world.
I combine my passion of painting spiders with teaching others to enjoy the world of watercolour too (where we paint normal subjects like landscapes and flowers)! My painting classes and workshops are held in the northern suburbs of Perth. They are such a joy to be part of and I enjoy watching students travelling on their own watercolor journey. I am also passionate about animal rights, and I’m pleased to say that all the products I use are animal friendly i.e. synthetic and don’t contain animal products.
I am a member of the Watercolour Society of WA, and enjoy mixing with members of this group, sharing skills, and contributing to art exhibitions and workshops.
And I would love to hear from you via my blogs. Comment on them, tell me about your artistic journey, and share some of your arty stories too!
