Creating art since I can remember my most recent paintings explore the themes of strength and joy.  My paintings are mostly portraits and figurative studies of children and woman. I use colour, texture, brush strokes and symbolism to convey emotion and add beauty. 
"Painting reminds me I can do hard (and beautiful) things, and helps me move through life with a sprinkle more joy, beauty and grace each day. I hope my art is a reminder to others they can too."
Originally from the small wheatbelt town of Dumbleyung, I studied Bachelor of Visual Arts at Edith Cowan University and went on to complete a Graduate Diploma in Education.
I now live in Greenwood, Western Australia, with my partner, two children and our furbaby, Baz. My time and energy are poured into my family and friends, my art and working with kids relief teaching.
