I was raised in a little weatherboard house alongside four sisters many animal friends in the Northern suburbs of NSW.
It is likely my inclination for drawing was inherited from my artistic father yet it was my intuitive mother who embraced my appetite for it. She would routinely leave out piles of butchers paper, pencils paint to express myself with after a school day, cultivating in me an endless fascination with illustrated stories.
My work draws inspiration from such childhood memories, from the layered characters I have met along life’s path, from kind gestures the wonderment of nature.
I have studied, worked volunteered in the performing arts, visual arts, arts administration animal rescue/rehabilitation.
I now create from an even littler weatherboard house alongside my burly bloke, delightful daughter many animal friends in the Southern Highlands of NSW.
