Inspired by those things that are slightly unpolished, the boldness of perfect imperfections. I have always been a creative soul. As a child I found myself happiest when rummaging through bush land, swimming lakes or salty from the sea. My love for nature, the landscape and my surroundings are reflected in my paintings through colour, mark making and the use of varied texture in my work. I am a self-taught artist. I have been painting long before I felt the urge to pursue it professionally. I believe much of the outcome in my work is a mirror of my inner emotions, and intuition. For me painting is a vessel to express myself in the most natural way I know how.
As an abstract mixed media artist, my main motivation is exploring how different textures, washes and methods interact with one another to form one unique and cohesive visual experience.
I have a real interest in contemporary design and love to mix old with new. One of my favourite aspects of being an artist is the opportunity to work with homeowners or designers that are seeking an original piece custom to their needs. There’s nothing more satisfyingly than seeing my art transform a space, and create ambience in the places they hang. Commission pieces allow me to inject the clients personality and help them the feel a deeper connection to their piece.
