With a young family in Margaret River, I have worked from home and enjoyed painting and creating in my spare time for the last five years. My experiences in the Pilbara, my love of the ocean and exploring the beautiful south west have built a wealth of inspiration for my art which has taken me on a journey of creation.

I want to create art from what I see, feel and experience in our beautiful environment and from my own life experiences. I get the urge to recreate the imagery, patterns, colours, textures and emotions that are ever so beautiful in life and nature. With the passion to recreate such a variety of scenery and themes, I have found the joy of exploring many mediums and techniques that have seemed to suit the various inspired art pieces in my ever-evolving artistic journey.

My body of work includes;

- a series of abstract works painted in acrylic and inks with layers of intricate patterns in rich bold colours;

- a series of underwater creatures such as turtles and sea dragons that are luminescent;

- a series of my own unique style that I call "Pop-art Portraiture" - a mixed media technique with themes of nature and human form/ portraiture that are bold, emotive, passionate and yet somewhat intricate and delicate at the same time; and
- a series of original Gyotaku fish ink prints and mixed media pieces utilising the prints to create unique and colourful underwater life oeuvres.

With such a variety or works and styles, I'm sure you will find and fall in love with a piece while visiting my studio. Please be sure to check my social pages to see more examples of my work. I look forward to meeting you during Margaret River Open Studios 2024.
