Taking that great leap of faith leaving a secure job in the public sector to follow my creative heart, I now work full time as a self-taught artist and painter, working from my home studio in Tolga on the beautiful Atherton Tablelands in far north Queensland.
I am moved by interesting forms and beautiful bold colours, finding inspiration in my local environment and the domestic details woven into everyday life. In my paintings I wish to remind the viewer to stop and take a moment to enjoy the present. My colourful tableaus are painted to help others appreciate what is under our very noses and to enjoy our little bit of paradise.
My work is displayed for sale in galleries in Cairns, Yungaburra and Townsville, and in May 2016 I held my first solo painting exhibition of current works at the Tablelands Regional Gallery, Atherton.
