About

I paint in happy colours to share my love of life, and the energy that I see in nature. When I walk in nature whether its a rainforest, the beach or botanical gardens the world around me sparkles with vibrancy and my art allows me to share this experience with those I love and who love art. In 2017 I decided I wanted to explore some new mediums including the use of alcohol ink and resin. I absolutely love the vibrancy of the inks and will continue exploring this medium. Most of my early works are done in watercolour and mixed media which I will still continue to use as well.

Education

I studied Fine Arts at TAFE in Townsville. Then for the next 12 months I worked at developing my own style, starting in acrylics then moving onto watercolours. Before starting a painting, I start an art journal with printed photos of the subject and I have fun experimenting with colour, different mediums and techniques.
