About

I am an emerging artist inspired by the beauty around me and what I discover on my beloved road-trips, hikes, and travel with my partner Andrew and our bulldog Ruby. I love the world and all its crazy beauty in both its people and its creatures and I am discovering ways to capture all of it in my work.
Until I began my painting journey in 2014, I was stuck in the technical world of engineering , automation and global business. As an accountant and then a professional engineer I never quite fit in to the norms around me. Through painting I've discovered who I am and only regret that it took me so long to find it.
I paint in a range of mediums, acrylic, oils and water colour ,and enjoy the challenge of commissioned pieces to stretch my skills into new and exciting areas. I let the work or the commission determine the size of my works and have examples from 10 cm squared oil painting of the outback to a 9 x 4 foot landscape also completed in oil.
If my works seem varied, it is because of my hunger to paint and discover all the ways to capture the beauty around me. If you have something that you would like to see, please do not hesitate to request it.
