I always loved painting at school and then life got in the way. I have returned to painting as I have rediscovered how much I love it and how good it makes me feel rather than worry about what I am going to do with all the paintings. I now choose to follow my heart and do what I love. It has been my me time, my escape , even my therapy.
I get in a flow state, get lost in the vibrancy of the colours, love experimenting with textures and techniques. I use various tools, palette knives, fingers, splattering and more. Many paintings come to me intuitively and the process can occur in 1 very productive session or several sessions over the course of months before I am completely happy. I prefer to create in the brightest of colours to benefit from the amazing energy and aliveness that this produces.
I grew up on a farm in a remote area of South Australia and loved being outdoors and my connection to nature continues. My love for the sea is also evident in my body of work - being a dreamy Pisces. I am inspired to add positivity to the world through my art and I hope it stirs your emotions, stimulates your senses and takes your imagination somewhere magical.
Works have been collected all over Australia and now in America. It is the energy, vibrancy and warmth the paintings bring to people's homes and lives that attracts buyers.
