I am an artist based on the Sunshine Coast of Australia and have been creating for almost ten years with ink, paint and clay. I have a love for colour, texture and details, which are evident in my painting, drawing and ceramic works.
It is always interesting to me to see how my art evolves. I started out with tiny, detailed watercolour illustrations in 2012. Once I dipped my paintbrush in a deep pink gouache paint, something within me stirred. Since then, I have not stopped creating regularly.
After indulging my love for watercolours and ink, I was drawn to acrylic painting, and my style has loosened up considerably. I also enjoy wheel throwing and decorating ceramics. I have a passion for bright hues and dainty flowers, which regularly appear in my creations.
Since 2016, I have been resident artist at Quixotica Art Space in Cooroy, which inspires many of my creations. This property is owned by my partner, Rowley Drydsale, one of Australia's leading ceramic artists and educators. I manage the coordination of workshops, exhibitions and all aspects of marketing there.
When I am not making my own art, I also spend time helping to organise art events for others in the Noosa artistic community, having been Vice President of the Noosa Arts & Crafts Association and President of Noosa Open Studios. I am currently the co-ordinator for a pop up gallery in Cooroy.
Consistent amongst it all is my love for colour, flowers and nature. Creating brings me much joy, and I hope it brings some of the same to those who interact with my art. I am so grateful for this new creative chapter in my life. I encourage others to dip a brush into paint, or hands into clay, and see what unfolds for them too.
