About

I was born in the U.K. and moved to Australia in 1999. Art is a second career for me, and I was inspired to tap into my creative side after the birth of my two children. Because of this, I have built my experience and practice rapidly by working with other artists who inspire me. My work is diverse, encompassing landscape, portraiture and figurative work . I have exhibited in a number of group exhibitions and support charitable and community organisations. My work is currently held in private collections in Australia, Germany, Singapore, Switzerland, China, the UK and the US.

2016 was a big year for me as I started entering my work into art awards and taking on commissions. The highlight was having a piece selected for the prestigious Portia Geach national portrait award, exhibited at the SH Ervin Gallery in Sydney during November and December 2016.

2017 is already shaping up well with great art sales and plenty of interesting commissions.
