Original Artwork by Lucee Blake
I've been painting for over 30 years I was fortunate enough to grow up surrounded by my mother's (Suzi's) art & was drawn to it (pardon the pun).
I completed high school, winning the art award on graduation & a scholarship from Rotary towards the purchase of my own art supplies. (Up till then I had been using my poor mum's & she still looks nervous when I go near her brushes).
I studied a bachelor of Art Education at Edith Cowan University majoring in Visual Arts / Secondary School teaching, but spent some time working as a Primary Art Specialist, & in other teaching roles, & creative jobs after graduation in 2001.
I paint mostly in oil but have recently begun painting with a mixed media and digital media due to the physical limitations of my chronic illness.
