  • Artist’s Statement

    I have a love of vivid colour and a quirky sense of style. My medium of choice is acrylics for their versatility. My approach to my work is to use colour to shade and accentuate giving an unrealistic look to her images. People capture my imagination mostly and indulges in pop portraiture. Being a private person I like people to take time to get to know me and by viewing my artwork the viewer can hopefully see the personality that is me.

  • Biography

    Born in western Sydney to a working-class family with a carpenter father and factory worker mother, the arts were not included in her early childhood. Both parents were avid readers and this lead to her discovering Ken Done, Sidney Nolan and Margaret Preston through print media.
