a world of my own

I was born in Ulverstone, Tasmania in 1971, and have always lived here. It is a beautiful part of the world, with everything from beaches to farmland to mountains with snow. I did art in high school, quite enjoyed it and always wanted to learn more, so I finally decided to do an Adult Education Folk Art class in about 2002 with Lynette Fairbrother. I continued painting with her for a number of years and progressed onto other types of painting and I haven’t stopped. I also sew and make cards, and have tried most crafts over the years. I took over one of our spare bedrooms and it is now my art/ craft room. It’s wonderful having a room just for this and you can shut the door on the…

photographing moving objects

The quest for a sharp, detailed image is highly prized by photographers as they are clear and easy to view but need skill to produce, thus making it a constant challenge for that sharper image without blur. This focus is paramount in capturing moving objects in a freeze-frame in perfect detail. Whatever your interest is, be it sporting actives or nature in motion, the shutter speed determines sharpness, the short shutter speed freezes the action and a long shutter speed blurs the action.

art is for my satisfaction

My art career began back in 1948 when, aged 10, I was achieving high marks in school composition projects which involved gathering information from the library (there was no internet then), rewriting the information (by hand) into the presentation, and adding illustrations by creating, copying, drawing and painting from references. My parents and teachers were impressed with my work and high marks, so at age 13, I was enrolled in the Art School at Wellington Technical College in Wellington, New Zealand. College subjects, apart from Maths, English, Biology, and Geography, covered Sculpture, Costume history, Watercolour, Pastels, Oils, Figure drawing, and Still Life. At 15 years of age, my father obtained an apprenticeship for me at the New Zealand Railways Publicity Department, training as a sign writer and pictorial poster artist. Advertisements in…
