About

Growing up in South Africa, I was enveloped in the richness of diverse heritage and magnificent form in the wonders of nature.
Even in my earliest memories, I marvelled at the joy that colour brings. I remember sitting curled up on my bed with pots of paint and pencils wanting to re-envision the beauty that surrounded me.
I am an acrylic artist based in Perth, Western Australia with a passion for all things botanical.
I take my cues from the local Australia flora as well as the traditional flowers that have drawn me in my entire life.
Like the first settlers in this vast and beautiful land I now call home, I too am exploring the mesmerizing strength and beauty in the architectural form of the native plants. The bold colours and shapes inspire me to thrive in this vast and glorious land.
The challenges of painting from capturing light on form, and deepening my relationship with colour, pull me back to my easel regularly.
Becoming a selling artist is a dream come true because I get to share my inspiration with others and I am gradually making a living from it.
