I'm a mixed media artist living on the beautiful and inspiring Sunshine Coast in Queensland, with my partner, three kids and two dogs. I grew up in small towns in south-east and tropical north Queensland before I moved to the Sunshine Coast at the age of 18. I love the lifestyle here and am constantly inspired by the natural diversities of the area. I am so grateful to be able to live such a dream and I hope this positivity shows through my paintings.
My abstract paintings are intuitive creations with varying colour and texture. I am 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.
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.
