I have always loved art, creating portraits in charcoal since forever.
In recent years I have broadened subject content to include seascapes, pet portraits and florals as well as figurative work.
My medium of choice is oils, but I at times I also paint in acrylics.
I now live on the magical Sunshine Coast and love travelling, both of which provide me with sources of inspiration.
Artist. Printmaker. Designer.
With a love for printmaking, following a career in graphic design, I love to share my skills and explore all printmaking media.
Printmaking gives me a space of calming respite from a culture of haste and automation. I love combining the meditative craft of relief and intaglio printing with capturing the slower pace of life in the natural world as the subject of my work. In my experiences of nature and its translation through the act of printmaking, I am reminded to be still and present in daily life.
I am the wife of a contemporary war veteran and my printing practice gives me respite from the sometimes chaotic world of the PTSD that we both live with and manage. I use my work as a way to share with and remind others of the calming effects of the sometimes quirky moments the natural world can bring to their own busy lives.
