About

Art is pivotal to my life. It is what moves me.

Early in my life I lived in the Himalayas and identified with a culture steeped in spirituality and art.
With the Dalai Lama’s permission, I attended a Tibetan School.

When I witnessed a miracle occur with one of my mothers paintings where the central deity/figure Tara, cried, I became captivated to create works.

In 2013, I co-founded a not for profit organisation ‘Turtle Conservation Project’ and launched an art and environment festival showcasing my work along with international and local artists together with speakers and organisations.

In 2014 I started illustrating and writing a book based on a sighting of a Golden Dolphin and in the same year at Lake Tahoe, California I held several exhibitions of my work and was represented by Art Obsessions Gallery.

In August 2017, I published my book ‘Rainbow Turtle, Golden Dolphin’. Through 16 stunning illustrations painted on canvas the book tells a story of a possible future on the earth.

My art practise primarily aims to describes what animates life, Spirit. I explore this with the use of light, subtlety, colour, texture and layering.

My work is represented by Henderson Gallery - South Brisbane QLD & Art Obsessions Gallery - California, USA
