Painting has always been a big part of my life. I still remember the feeling of selling my first painting; I was in high school and was so excited that someone wanted to have my work on their wall. I still feel like that, it is a very humbling and wonderful experience to sell an artwork you have created.
My work is influenced by my upbringing in the Western district of rural Victoria, where the vibrant colours of the seasons are a never ending source of inspiration. I work predominantly with oil paints; I love the texture and the permanency of colour which will hold true for many years. I paint most days from my studio in South Melbourne but also paint from my home in the country.
After a career in the fashion industry, I decided in 2002 that is was time to devote myself to painting full-time. I consider myself very fortunate to be following the path of my passion – doing what I love each day.
