I’m a Painter and Creative Mentor and I love all things colourful! My passion is to teach and experimenting with new, exciting techniques, using unusual materials and pushing creative and technological boundaries.
I was born in Dumfries, Scotland, but raised in the remote and picturesque town of Stornoway in the Western Isles. I have been fortunate to live all over Europe and further abroad, and am now happy to call Australia my home.
I have a wonderful husband and grown-up children, as well as two gorgeous parrots and two French Bulldogs!
What’s my inspiration?
Anything and everything to do with nature, colour and the ocean- as you can see from my large-scale resin artworks!
A little about my journey as an artist…
I received formal training in Islington, London, under the mentorship of Jocasta Innes, who founded the UK National ‘Paint Magic’ franchise. I studied Interior Design and Painting, and it was here that I became hooked on the magic of Stencil, Stucco, Marble, Trompe l’oeil and Furniture Painting. I soon became obsessed with colour and interior design! I then trained in Australia under Coco Republic, and have exhibited works in Central Coast, NSW, Sydney and Melbourne and I also create private commissions.
