Her style is versatile, with a variety of styles to cater to different sides of her character such as Cityscapes, Beach Landscapes, Nudes, Fantasy, Pop Art, Abstract, Spin Art with a touch of 80’s retro Kiwiana patriotism. The Cityscapes and Beach landscapes are usually somewhere personally visited, the Nudes and Fantasy Art help keep up her technical skills; the Abstracts and Spin Art are emotive – relating to current affairs and the Kiwiana is a bit of fun for the expats who miss home.
