About your Mentor

About your Mentor


I have always had a love of nature, as a child whiling away many hours in the fields behind the house, and throughout my life walking the hills, woodland and seashores near my home. I’ve been drawn to engaging creatively in life, making things, drawing, using collage, dancing, swimming in wild seas, doing thing differently. I’ve worked in the hospitality industry, managed a Complimentary Health practice, led walks (Soles & Souls) and facilitated a variety of art workshops and classes. Mindfully Creative is a synthesis of Creativity, Mindfulness and Nature. I studied Art (printmaking) in Sydney in the 1980’s and have taught a variety of art classes over the years, in particular life drawing. I’ve explored a wide range of media and have an eclectic approach, enjoying the contrast of working on the one hand in a wild, spontaneous and free manner with paint and mixed media, and on the other hand working very carefully and precisely in pen and ink to create detailed designs and mandalas.
