  • Biography

    I began my art journey in 2019 after attending a prophetic art elective here in Toowoomba.
    I started with Watercolour and  loved the medium, despite its unforgiving nature.
     In 2023 I embarked on a year  long online art course under the direction of Phill Davis where I discovered a love for pastels among other mediums. I loved Phil’s teaching style which encouraged me to press deeper into the creative world. 
    I enjoy botanical works as well as the animal kingdom. 
    As I love expressing myself through detail, these  two subjects offer me opportunity to hone my creative flair.
    Drawing with pastels and painting with watercolour have opened up a whole new world of creativity and joy.

  • Influences

    English artist Phil Davies has inspired me to press deeper into the art world and to explore different mediums. 
    David Rogers a Canada watercolour artist who offers online classes, inspired me in my  early days of discovering the joy I’d watercolour.
    I recently had an opportunity to do a two day workshop here in Toowoomba with Lyn Diefenvach.  Lyn easy teaching style sparked a deeper love for using pastels.
