Starting out as a designer in the beginning of my career I decided to embark on a new journey … the joy of making art. One painting and I was hooked, spending every available moment painting, experimenting with texture and mediums, pouring and resin.
I’m a Brisbane based contemporary landscape, seascape and not so still life artist. Over the last few years I have found myself completely immersed in a world of creativity. Using a rich, energetic colour pallet I love to experiment with acrylics, oils, ink, charcoal, pencil and mixed media.
Strongly inspired by the beauty of nature, my paintings are a response expressed in colour, depth and movement
which come from my exceptionally beautiful surrounds, both in its simplicity and complexity, this resonates in my versatile painting techniques.
What influences my art
Having lived in Africa I was influenced by fauna, flora and the beautiful landscapes and surrounds. I have always loved nature, every aspect of it. I find it energising as an artist to explore and study what I paint and to get to know the subject in as much detail as possible. It’s natural for me to paint what I am naturally drawn to.
Now living in beautiful Australia has provided me with a world of inspiration, a celebration of our uniquely Australian flora, fauna and landscape.
By nature I have always been one for the creative side. Art is my passion and a place to pour out my inner thoughts and emotions. Growing up in a home that encouraged my creativity I have experimented with many different mediums. I have completed extensive studies in painting and drawing and achieved a Diploma of Visual Arts.
My motivation to create works simply comes from the love of it. My paintings are created slowly and thoughtfully, to engage the viewer by combining realism with contemporary, creating works that embrace many styles. My aim is to evoke a sense of connection through colour and texture and create an emotional experience.
I create work that I hope injects warmth and joy into homes and hearts.
No matter the form, art is where I feel most at home.
I hold collections in Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, England, Africa, Taiwan, Japan and United States of America.
