I've always been creative and loved to paint. I drew perspective on a giraffe mother and baby in preschool and ever since I can remember, art has been my hobby. When I was 13 and living in Far North Queensland, I got an after school job at a local florist/art supplies/gift/fishing tackle (weird) shop. There weren't many customers and I was there by myself so I would arrange flowers and then paint them in watercolours while I waited until closing time. It was a dream job for a 13 year old!
Fast forward to the present and I'm living on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland with my partner, three kids and two dogs. I've been here for the past 12 years and it is an amazing part of the world.
My creative brain never stops so I channel that into my art. I'm constantly inspired by the world around us, particularly nature and animals.
I recently started what I like to call 'freepainting', a style of abstract I guess. Others may use the term fluid painting. I just love the freedom and the flow so think freepainting is a fitting term.
My style in all my paintings is free and loose. When painting my animals, I like to convey their personalities, attitudes and expression. Most of my pieces are quite large and I always tend to paint in a bold style that makes a statement.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to view my work.
