Oprey hails from the Northern Rivers, a region of the Australian state of New South Wales. Although she is a social worker by profession, she has always been interested in art. As a social worker and as a mother, she has been exposed to all sorts of situations, people and emotions that influenced her work. Her vibrant paintings usually feature characters and subjects that reflect her thoughts and feelings often with a touch of humour.
