About

I am a painter with a bachelor degree in Fine Art. I also hold a Masters in Art Therapy. I have studio space at River Studios run by the City of Melbourne Creative Spaces Project. I work directly from the motif; I don't use photographs because I can't feel the sense of myself in environment that I need. I feel that the image loses something by being mediated through a camera. I paint to express my emotions. I love the curiosity that people show in what I am doing and how they stop and talk to me.
