Summary

My art is about capturing fleeting sensations... Sensations of joy, reflection, tranquility. Abstract figures filled with feminine mystery form the basis of images that delve into our emotional kinship with the natural world.

  • About

    My art is about capturing fleeting sensations... Sensations of joy, reflection, tranquility.

    I am inspired by nature and mythology – coalescing into tranquil and sensual paintings infused with feminine forms that represent our connection with nature. Abstract human figures filled with feminine mystery, coexisting with leaves, seed pods, and organic patterns, form the basis of images that delve into our emotional and physical kinship with the natural world.

    I explore a combination of techniques in my work to create dynamic contrasts between order and chaos – the free flow of watercolour paint collides with detailed and precise line-work created with pen and ink.

  • Biography

    After spending six years in the USA and Denmark, I am struck anew by the beauty and wildness of the Australian coastal landscapes that now surround me... the swell of storm-laden seas against sandy foreshores, rock pools pulsing with delicate life, and the shifting light that permeates it all… providing me with new perspectives and inspirations to weave into my art.

    I started my professional career as a graphic designer and video game artist, and have now fully embraced my passion for art, which I share with others through my paintings and also in creative facilitation of workshops and community events.
