  • Biography

    Born in Hastings, Victoria, Australia After completing a Certificate in Graphic Design, I first started working at age 18, as an assistant to Ken Done and after a long career in graphic design as a finished artist and illustrator and with my children now grown, I made a decision to take up painting full time 8 years ago, 5 of those spent living and immersing myself in the Sydney art scene.

    I now paint from my private studio on the NSW Central Coast. My current still life works are inspired by romantic notions, poetry, music, my organic garden, lost and found treasures, storytelling, texture, pattern, glass and metallic objects. An intuitive painter and mostly self taught, working across mediums of watercolour, gouache and oils, and with a strong foundation in drawing, my paintings are loose and suggestive, with bold marks and broad brush strokes, creating a seemingly detailed rendering, some marks appear unfinished but somehow add to the importance of the composition and are thoughtfully left.

    I have travelled Australia extensively and continue exploring and gathering material and inspiration, reflected in my work. I have exhibited in a number of solo and group exhibitions, my work can be found in public and private collections both internationally and nationally.
