  • Artist’s Statement

    I classify myself as an intuitive artist, my paintings are influenced by nature’s beauty, all the shapes, colours and textures, the changing of the seasons. I particularly love painting garden flowers covered in rain or beautiful rays of sunlight. I paint mostly with acrylics and love the intricate process of combining layers and layers of colour. Painting simply brings me so much joy, so I carve out time for art at any opportunity.

  • Biography

    I am a Brisbane-based artist, originally from Townsville, and art has always been a huge part of my life. Having studied a Bachelor of Visual Arts at university, I then went on to have an amazing career as a graphic designer for 18 years in the television industry.
