I am an Ipswich resident, currently living in Sadliers Crossing. I commenced art classes 6 years ago at Arts Alive Ipswich under the mentorship of Lorraine Kitching, further fuelling my passion for art and the Arts.
I am an active member of Arts Connect Ipswich, and recently collaborated with fellow artists Glen Smith and Grant Quinn for the successful exhibition Curio (March 2019- Drawing Point Gallery, Ipswich).
I regularly set myself goals for improving art practice and my practice sees me work across a number of mediums, currently exploring and adding hand built ceramics to my ‘tool kit’. I believe working in three dimensional perspectives has aided my drawing and painting skills.
I have occupied an art studio in Goleby’s Basement Ipswich since 2015 and am presently engaging builders to build a home studio. I seek to improve my skills through workshops, painting en plain air and have completed visual art subjects through Curtin University.
i am influenced by that around me- people, landscape, urban life etc. Mostly fluent in acrylic although happily extend this to include other mediums. I find the subject of the work can dictate the selected medium.
I admire many Australian artists- Quilty, Whiteley, Olsen, Boyd to name just a few. I get excited by colour sand shape so artist admiration is broad.
