About

I am happiest when I'm in my art space. I often have paint on my hair, clothes and feet.

I try to practise everyday, and navigate an ever-changing emotional landscape; inspired by my imagination, self-doubt, love, courage and my longing to create. I am completely obsessed with faces; pretty ones, furry ones and grubby ones. The goal in my work is to strive to capture a moment which triggers a memory and an emotional connection with the viewer. Mostly my work is a reflection on a dream, of beauty, whimsy and wonderment. I paint from the heart, first it speaks to me, then I light a candle, play some music, and paint.
