I was raised in a very creative environment; and as a self-taught artist, I was always encouraged to follow my creative pursuits at home and began drawing in charcoal at a young age.
Originally from Perth, my husband and I have been overseas for a while, but now based in Cronulla, Sydney.
My works celebrate a quality which exaggerates colour and perspectives, intentionally exposing brush marks and paint drips to show signs of the hand made and contribute to the visual environment of my works. I also believe there is an honesty in the imperfect.
Subjects for my art are a diverse fusion of my personal travels and experiences along with memories and encounters with the special individuals Ive met. I find moments that inspire me, endeavour to capture them and translate it into my art so my audience can experience it as well.
The greatest joy is to see others connect and celebrate the little bit of satire and originality that I assemble in each piece. My hope is that my audience gains as much enjoyment from my completed works as I gain from the creative process.
