It’s easy to be overwhelmed or carried away by the world and people and pressures of life sometimes and I find my abstract paintings take me somewhere else – there’s nothing else there, nothing to conform to, I just paint what I want. I hope that you feel the same way when you see my paintings, even just for a moment, a little oasis where you can see what you want and it’s nothing to do with this world.
I get inspired by not only my imagination but also by things in reality such as beautiful colour palettes or even just a word that I would like to interpret as a painting.
I live as cruelty free as possible and love animals and nature. I hope to depict the animals I paint with shining personalities and life in their eyes. I want people to be able to connect with the painting that way.
In a nutshell, I am a mother and and artist, a dreamer and a doer. I began creating art regularly when I found myself a stay at home mum with our three kids, a small home business to run and nothing for myself, no identity at all. Something needed to change. I sacrificed more sleep to stay up painting, wound up my little business and decided to pursue art instead. I’m constantly inspired. I have too much material floating around in my head to keep up with and my art is where I channel this inspiration.
I live with my partner, three kids and two dogs and the Sunshine Coast is our home. Every day I am able to wake up in this beautiful part of the world, create pieces of art and spend time with my family – I am so grateful to be able to live such a dream and I hope this positivity shows through my paintings.
Creating art for others is so satisfying and uplifting for me. To have people admire something I’ve created and even want to take it home and live with it on their wall is incredibly rewarding. So thank you very much for taking the time to view my artwork. Enquiries welcome.
