About

I am a mixed media artist from the Central Coast of N.S.W. I have been creating and selling my work for a few years now and love many various forms of art.
My art practice attempts to engage the viewer so that they may observe and appreciate the natural and man made environments: the conglomeration of little things make the big things whether they are fictional, real or emotional.

My practice involves painting, drawing,layering ,photography ,embellishing and collage style which is explored through mixed media including acrylic paints, various different types of inks, stamps, papers which are decorative and recycled, Oil Paint sticks, texture paste, Ephemera.

My work is an expression of the beauty I see around me and through my work, I can ‘freeze’ it or capture important moments from my perception whether it is real or imagined.
