About

Award winning Brisbane artist

Originally grew up in Sydney and took up Art studies at a young age.

I love to work in bright colours and experiment with new textures and mediums.

I love to paint expressively rather than labouring on the detail. I feel this keeps the looseness and freshness in the artwork.

Art allows me to express my emotions and feelings.
Each piece of Artwork is my own interpretation on how I see life.
Sometimes Happy ‚ sometimes sad‚ sometimes expressing the humourous side of life.

I love to experiment with‚ oils‚ acrylics ‚pastels and inks.

Expressing the idea rather than the detail allows the flow and freedom in my work.

No matter what the subject is I feel I have achieved a good result when the piece oozes with colour and energy.

I have won several Art awards and sold many cherished pieces.

Welcome to my world I hope you enjoy them!!!
