As a child I always loved to draw and colour in, as an adult I still love to do the same. Over the years I have played with oil paints, pencils, pastel, mixed media and Scratchboard. It's a journey that never grows old.
I enjoy focusing on a range of topics and will joyfully tackle any subject that appeals to my fancy at the time; however, I do have a soft spot for our native Australian flora and fauna….and cats!
I am also happy to be approached for commission pieces and have completed quite a few over the years.
Influences and Inspiration
I am inspired by the beauty I see around me. Colours, images, and particularly animals of all types.
I love the process of scratchboard fine art in particular. There is just something magical about creating an image with a scalpel.
