My first love is drawing and my artwork was first published as a comic strip for a Brisbane Newspaper when I was aged 13 which led to a full page article in “People” Magazine and a segment on the children’s television program “Wombat”. I began painting while working as an assistant Gallery Manager on the Gold Coast and a local Artist encouraged me to pursue my dream.
After a successful solo exhibition in Brisbane in 1996 I have completed numerous commissions throughout Australia and overseas, including 10 paintings commissioned by the one company in Japan. Then went on to design and illustrate the Sony Play station game “California Surfing” which was distributed throughout Europe, and have written and illustrated children’s picture books while running the family business and raising three children.
Awards include winning the Nifsan Gold Coast Signature Art Prize for “Water Babies” in 2002 with my work included in the Gold Coast City Council Art Collection. In association with the Gold Coast Tourism Bureau, the GCCC reproduced the artwork into postcards and 20 specially framed pieces, which represent the “Nifsan Signature Collection”.
In the following year I was selected as one of the few Australian artists being selected for the Biennale Internationale Del’Art Contemporanea organised by the World Bank and UNESCO in collaboration with the Italian Ministry for foreign Affairs in Florence, Italy. Artists were selected in the Biennale by an international committee of critics on the basis of Creativity and professionalism, and is the world’s most comprehensive exhibition of contemporary art, representing 891 Artists from 72 countries.
Most recently traveled to Provence in the south of France for an Artist Residency working on a series of water colours that I combine to create a visual narrative that represents the colourful rhythms of life’s journey.
