I bred Burmese with the prefix AURORA for about 22 years. I have been an Allbreeds Judge for approximately 20 years now living in NSW and trained as an All Shorthair Judge as a member of QFA Inc. Barbara La Rocca, Liz Haimes (dec’d) and Geoff Dumigan (dec’d) were my tutors. I obtained my Longhair Licence when a member of QICC Inc. and Gary and Heather Brown were my tutors. Due to family commitments I no longer breed cats, but I do love judging them and getting kitten cuddles. My beloved Blue Burmese Aurora Elusive Blue lived to the age of 21 years and her half brother is 14 years old now. I have enjoyed some success with my Burmese both in Australia and overseas and many Aurora descendants are still proving themselves on the show bench and breeding quality kittens worldwide. ie; Canada, Europe, Russia, Norway, New Zealand and South Africa. I love receiving photographs from all over the world showing me how the Burmese are progressing. I have managed shows, been President of The Burmese Cat Society of Qld for years, have been a Registrar and Secretary at affiliate level in Qld. I joined the Gold Coast Cat Club before I started breeding and was a secretary for the club many years ago. In 2009 several QFA breeders and I ran an online Cat Show fundraising for Native Wildlife injured and displaced by Victoria’s worst bushfires. It showed how cat breeders do care for wildlife. These days I spend time creating Feline PowerPoint presentations for educational use to train student judges and as a refresher for judges worldwide. I also do oil paintings of landscapes, wild cats and seas and I enjoy my garden. I have been fortunate to judge in all states of Australia and the Northern Territory as well as in New Zealand.

As a child I grew up in Switzerland and was always surrounded by cats. My love for all breeds of cats including domestics has continued throughout my life. I started breeding Persians under the prefix Martes and have successfully shown Persian and Exotics for over 20 years. The Martes prefix is well known in Australia and New Zealand for its many Best in Show and Cat of the Year Awards. I am a fully qualified All Breeds Judge, starting with Group 1 in 1986. I have enjoyed judging in all states of Australia. I served as an executive member of the Management committee as well as holding the position of treasurer of NSW CFA for 15 years before retiring. I have also held the position of Treasurer with the Co–ordinating Cat Council of Australia and the Feline Health Research Fund.
