About

I am a Sydney-based illustrator and designer and the mother of two boys. After having spent nearly 20 years in the advertising industry brainstorming, debating strategy and interpreting creative briefs behind a computer screen, I have decided to re-explore where it all started for me - the love of painting, life-drawing and the immersive, tactile experience of traditional art mediums.

Ever since I could hold a pencil, I have loved to draw and paint. I attended high school at the Pro-Arte School for Art, Ballet, Music and Drama and then completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Pretoria (South Africa) before embarking on my graphic design career.

Inspired by the beautiful seascapes that surround me in Avalon, my artworks are an interpretation of the ever-changing moods and colours of my environment. This is expressed through dramatic, energetic brushwork and the layering of colours.

Education

Bachelor of Fine Arts - University of Pretoria (South Africa)

Influences

I am inspired by natural beauty and my surroundings. The dreamy, colourful work of Marc Chagall and the vibrant brushwork of Claude Monet in his later life are also strongly reflected in my work.
