About

Who Am I​?
A colourist
An individual (when feeling brave)
A recovering perfectionist (work in progress)
​An abstractionist (there is enough reality in life)
A texturist (a bit rough around the edges)
A procrastinator (over thinker)​
A dreamer (of course)

​It is my hope that in my paintings I will generate an emotional, reminiscent feeling in the viewer, a sense of vulnerability, of exposed glimpses of struggles, hopes and fears, whilst demonstrating what I believe is the great beauty in imperfection and ageing, to times gone by, when life seemed simpler.​ The theme of my work is identity, belonging and home.  As the daughter of Irish immigrant parents, I was born in London, England and often felt a lack of belonging.  I neither felt English nor Irish.  I have now lived in Melbourne for nearly 10 years and have come to realise that home truly where your heart is, my home is with my painting, wherever that may be.​ ​

Biography - I studied Fine Art at the University College for the Creative Arts in Surrey, for three years, prior to moving to Melbourne in 2008.  Since then I have exhibited at many art shows and group exhibitions in Melbourne and on the Mornington Peninsula, sometimes winning prizes.​I now work out of Southern Buoy Studios in Mornington with a wonderful group of artists.
