About

Painting breathes life into my dreams,
draws me closer to the unlimited creative thoughts and feelings inside.
Creates a bridge to my ancestors through which they speak to me.
Allows a space for me to express my powerful feelings without words.
Painting heals and brings me Peace.

I work from a revamped shipping container called The Shoebox Gallery, my partner and I renovated with recycled materials.
Faces are my niche. Currently famous faces as I explore 'Muso's'. Portraits are my focus and I've painted beloved pets,family members passed on, even classic cars. As part of an indigenous family I've drawn and painted many Aboriginal faces. I create rusty mixed media with found and donated items.
A highlight for me was the donation of my artwork 'Look to the Future' by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to Lourdes Hill Girls College in Brisbane. Consequently I received a commission to paint a contemporary portrait of St. Mary Mackillop for the College.
