About

I am a visionary contemporary artist‚ with a passion for the natural environment‚ the beauty of our earth and the feminine. I’m inspired by the landscape‚ the sea, ocean, mountains and clouds. My fine art involves painting‚ drawing and printmaking and mixed media techniques. I am painting in the mediums of oils and acrylics. I create "Art for the Soul" to inspire and uplift. I create from my studio at “Sanctuary Divine” in the beautiful Huon Valley on the island of Tasmania.
