About Petra

I am German and have been living in Australia since 1997.

I have always loved to draw and paint. I did not have a medium I preferred to others. I originally wanted to pursue a career as Graphic Designer, but then got sidetracked with administration work and helping my partner in his businesses. Throw a couple of children in the mix and there was no time any more for art at all.

A couple of years ago I did an acrylics painting course in Perth, - I had never done acrylics-,  and absolutely loved it. Ever since I wanted to start painting again, concentrating on this particular medium.

It took another couple of years until I started up painting again, etched on by my friends who gave me a few canvasses and a voucher for an art supply shop for my birthday. A couple of weeks ago I did my first acrylic painting since the course in Perth as a birthday present for a friend of mine, and I discovered that I could still paint!

Today I did another one, and hopefully this is the start of something great! ;-)
