Ruth Hughes photoDuring my busy working life, I was able to develop an interest in calligraphy. Watercolours and pen and ink studies were a hobby on my travels too.

Since retirement, I have been able to concentrate on oil, and, on occasions, enjoy plein air, attempting to capture the light. My pen and ink drawing continues. I have been a keen participant in the Kilcoy Courthouse Art Gallery since its relocation. For the last couple of years, I have enjoyed being part of several youth art projects in Kilcoy.
