Since my earliest memories creating and viewing visual art has excited me. After nearly two decades of painting my intuition is my guide and I rarely set out with a specific subject in mind. Drawing inspiration from natural elements, particularly my local surroundings of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula, I create a canvas full of colours and textures and wait for the imagery to reveal itself. While some subjects expose themselves immediately, nestled in the colour and texture, at other times I watch the canvas for days, waiting for the imagery to unfold. The process is never the same.
My recent works are acrylics, which I love due to their fluidity in creating layers of vibrant colour. Created with a process I call “Flowfusion”, the technique was inspired from the organic nature of liquid paint and the fluid look created by different colours running together. I also experiment with the pouring of paints onto canvas, manipulating it with a variety of methods, including gravity, to create a beautiful marbling effect and other unique finishes.
In my work I am inspired by life and movement, everything I see and the emotions and energy I experience. Conveyed through my abstract expressionist style, I focus on allowing the paint to lead me to face the unknown. Through an explosion of colours and emotion, my work showcases the dynamics of life through the movement of the abstract form and her rich palette.

Her great inspiration have been abstract expressionists‚ such as Jackson Pollock, Sam Francis and Wassily Kandinsky.
"My creativity resembles a growing tree of a film about life in general. It has many single branches but it leads in one particular direction‚ searching for new means of expression and new values. Artistic picture of my feelings and experiences transformed by my consciousness‚ giving different synthetic form - abstract dimension".
