I was born in Germany in 1956, one of 7 children. When I was 11 years old, my family moved to Ontario, Canada, where I happily lived for 25 years.
In 1993 my husband, two kids and I moved to Melbourne, Australia. I now live in Altona Meadows, near the beach. We've been living here for 18 years. I have my own backyard studio, where I teach watercolour and acrylics classes and workshops.
I'm also a member of the Hobson's Bay Arts Society,hobsonsbayartsociety.weebly.co… and continue to learn by going to life drawing leonie-newportlifedrawing.blog… and watercolour classes.
