I am a practising artist based on the Sunshine Coast, creating original artworks and products reflecting my love of nature, people and colour.


My art is a way to celebrate the extraordinary beauty in our everyday, that we can often overlook. I bring my subjects to life, most often plants and animals, in vibrant colour using watercolour, acrylic, ink and pen. I will not shy away from working in new materials and also love to experiment in sculpture, ceramics as well as theatre set and costume design. Variety is most certainly the spice of this artists life!
