I was born and raised in Manly NSW. My husband, Paul was born in Chicago, raised in California (now an Aussie too). We moved to Tura Beach NSW in 2008 from Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains, where we lived for 14 years. Prior to that time we lived in Southrn California. I am involved with the local Art Group here in Merimbula and once again enjoy living near the ocean.
