I am a Melbourne based artist who aims to tread as lightly as I possibly can on our beautiful planet. I’ve been painting and drawing ever since I can remember, coming from a family of artists and creatives, and in the last few years my art practise has become a full-time pursuit.

I have always loved to draw, particularly portraits, flowers and patterns. However, it is when I am making abstract art that I feel most connected with my purpose. I like to experiment with different techniques and utensils to apply paint, and often end up using my hands, which further connects me with the piece. I have also recently begun working with upcycled textiles, particularly denim. I love the fraying that occurs overtime on the raw edges.

I am totally inspired by nature. Growing up in the Southern Highlands of NSW on the edge of Morton National Park, I have always felt a strong connection with the Australian bush. I feel very lucky to again live surrounded by bush, now in Victoria. This connection is so uplifting for me and gives me great inspiration to immerse myself in the paints and canvas.

In my childhood and early years my inspiration began with countless hours watching my Dad painting landscapes, seascapes, still-life and equine portraits and my brother paint Australian birds & wildlife, and so began an ever-evolving journey that has led me to follow my art dream.

Thank you for your interest in my art.
