After years of raising children whilst studying and working as a Primary School teacher in NSW, I needed a change due to the pandemic crisis in 2020.
The decision to take all my long service leave proved successful for me because it was then, that I discovered my love of visual drawing and painting. Starting off with watercolour and mixed media to now becoming engaged in canvas and acrylic work.
This self-taught journey was the start to research into my own small art business (Sydney InSights). Now, I can provide the balance of doing what I love, teaching students of other languages English (at a private college) and experiment with all forms of visual art amd photography. I have an interest in being resourceful too, so some of my work features reusable products to bring into my art.
In 2021, my new art venture, 'Sydney InSights' began, and as they say, I've never looked back. Fast forward to 2022, my first gallery acceptance at the 'Boomer Gallery' in London in February with -'Under the Sea', as well as, the launch of my own website, www.sydneyinsights.com.au. Working through other platforms like Gallery247, I hope to share the love, artwork and inspiration which I found, with others.
Currently, as of in June 2022, I received notice that I am a finalist in the small business local awards of Sydney's lower north shore (August) and also a finalist in the national business awards, 'Champions' (September). I am pretty thrilled and very delighted.
