About

I am a watercolour artist who is passionate about my work and about watercolour.

Primarily a drawing medium within in my technique, I use watercolour as I would a pencil or perhaps ink and add extra water to encourage the beautiful unique effects, only found when working with this marvellous medium.

I am capable of drawing a variety of subjects but the two that interest me the most or animals and people. When I draw animals I aim to capture the essence of the animals personality, perhaps showing some human qualities in the work. When I draw people I am interested in gender, sexuality, feminism and the female experience.

My art studio is housed in an old 1970's school bus. It has plenty of old charm and best of all, I am enchanted with the panoramic rolling Nimbin hills that surround me, and the abundance of natural light that working in a bus offers my practice.

My lifestyle ensures that my practice has a minimal ecological footprint, something that is very important to me. All materials I use are non-toxic, reusable/recycled where possible and I live and work as off the grid as much as possible while still needing to buying petrol to run my car and, very sporadically my generator.

I am currently studying Visual Arts at University and am working on a book to be published in the future.
