I am an artist working with watercolour paint, alcohol inks, charcoal and pastels, with a wide variety of subjects including florals, wild animals, pet portraits and contemporary art.
My paintings have appeared in art shows such as:
*The Carlingford Community Art Show
*Mornington Art Show
*Boynes Emerging Artist Award 2021
*Jacksons Art Prize 2021
*Ravenswood Art Prize
*7th Annual All Women’s Artist Competition I was selected for The Australian Watercolour Muster 2021, and invited to be a featured artist in the 6th Annual International Painting Salon at the Menuinda Schneider Gallery in LA.
I have also been a guest artist on two worldwide art websites.
My fascination with arts and crafts led me to explore resin art, ceramics, silk paintings, jewellery, textiles and bobbin lace, before discovering my passion for watercolour, alcohol ink and charcoal. I am a keen bushwalker and kayaker and draw much of my inspiration from Australian flora, fauna, and landscapes. I love colour and enjoy the challenge of each new painting.
My aim is to bring original art within reach of the average family, and encourage children to experience the joy to be found in creativity. A mother of 3 and grandmother of 6, I took up painting in April 2020 as a result of the Covid isolation and discovered a passion and joy in the creation of works of art, often reflecting the unique flora, fauna and landscapes of our beautiful Australia. I find you can't be bored or stressed when you're painting, and looking at a beautiful piece of art always lifts your mood and makes you feel good - a bonus in these days of Covid.
The designs are one of a kind, but commissions are available, if you want something similar to a piece which has already sold, or a special project of your own. I'm also happy to do Pet commissions so all enquiries are welcome. I hope you enjoy looking at my artworks!
