Over the past 25 years I have worked extensively in product development, and as a freelance graphic designer, guiding brands and products (giftware, homewares, jewelry, apparel, and toys) from conception to production, while managing websites, social media content and direct digital marketing. I have been the lynchpin on many events in the arts and business world, overseeing product launches, trade fairs (local, interstate and overseas), board presentations, exhibition stand designs, props, set-up, logistics and operations.
I have previously taught art, craft, sculpture, printing, and digital design workshops and currently teach kids painting, and drawing using innovative methods at a local art school. I have more recently purchased a business that puts kids’ art onto plates (and other products), this felt like a perfect segue from my graphic design work.
I volunteer when time permits with both a whale research group (HHR Humpbacks and Highrises) and in the koala enclosures at Currumbin Sanctuary.
I have a love for the ocean and all its magnificent life forms, and I make sure I get in it every day, it is powerful and energising and I believe it must be respected and preserved.
Along with my passion for art, I am also a fitness trainer believing that a healthy body helps nurture a healthy mind.
