I am an artist on the Sunshine Coast with a love for portraiture and figurative art. I love to paint in oils and in an expressionist style. There is nothing I enjoy more than starting a fresh new canvas and the quiet excitement I feel inside each time, of the creation journey ahead.

When I paint a portrait it is so much more than capturing the features of a face. I find I am very drawn to subjects that show a level of emotion or something of themselves in their eyes, stance or posture. I do like painting strong women and depicting an honesty of the subject within the painting.


I paint in oils and occasionally in gouache.

More About Me

I have always held an appreciation of art and have been keen to draw, sketch and paint from a young age. Pencil and paper were always by my side growing up where my love for figurative art and portraiture became evident very early.

Having a busy career and family commitments never deterred me from learning what I could about drawing and painting over many years. More recently, I have had the opportunity to work on my artwork fulltime and have been dedicated to developing my own style and purpose to my work.
