As a child it was my escape from the noise of a household of eight to go into our paddocks and create. It was also my favourite time filler while traveling the world with my husband.
After having four children in five years, I longed to put brush to paper without the stress of toddlers’ wandering hands getting into my oil paints or mediums.
After finding the space to paint freely again, the female figure features almost exclusively in my work. My true passion lies in connecting with my collectors through the emotions and messages that inspire my pieces, as we all learn to embrace our own beautiful mess.
There’s usually sticky little hands and wet noses poking around my studio. And there's always a jumble of spray paint, antique newspaper clippings, and my children's drawings that often get featured in my work.
It's a beautiful mess. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
