The things I love the most come together in my artwork to create pieces that celebrate joy, quirkiness and beauty.

I grew up in semi-rural Victoria, with big cumulous skies and lovely natural bushland. I was blessed to have many family pets and animals in our household. I loved them all, particularly the dogs and horses. They brought me friendship, humour and honesty.

Art was my other childhood delight. I was seen as the arty one in my family and fully supported by my parents to pursue my creative interests. 

I completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts at Monash University’s Gippsland Campus and thrived on the community of art school. Going into my studio everyday was a delight, but at the completion, I found myself lost and ill- equipped to pursue my art professionally.

Life moved on and I fell in love with many other creative expressions which satisfied me at the time and fit better with the business of raising a family.

Finally, after a long hibernation, my love for painting re-emerged. In my animal paintings, I enjoy capturing a moment or a gesture which reflects communication between the subject and its human audience. 

In all my paintings, I look for compositions that bring colour, beauty and a little bit of playfulness. .
