Kate Fagan McCann has been painting all of her life but since coming to live in Ballina four years ago she has been painting nearly every day and enjoying it more than ever.
I was dabbling for years... then a tutor taught me one-on-one every week for a year. After that I felt I could paint anything, said Kate.
Her current exhibition opens this Saturday, December 9, at the Nimbin Regional Gallery (the rainbow building).
Her work ranges from landscapes and seascapes to old houses, animals and clowns even going cubist occasionally.
I can create hundreds of miles in front of me with my landscapes and seascapes it gives me a sense of freedom and satisfaction, said Kate.
Her exhibition runs until December 23.
