I am originally from New Zealand but have lived in Australia now for about 40 years. I have always enjoyed living in rural areas so have spent most of my life in outback australia. I am a Christian with a family or three grown children and now 4 grandchildren. Apart from them my two major passions in life have always been travel and art. I am now semi retired and beginning to make ends meet quite nicely through sales of my watercolour paintings and ongoing watercolour workshops.
