My aspiration is at the same time both simple and lofty: to create more opportunities for daydreamers to keep their heads in the clouds.
Harvested from an infatuation with colour and a yearning for the pleasantly strange to infuse daily life, each painting is subtle hued and playfully offbeat. An idea that made me smile, a fancy, snatched, then devotedly rendered on canvas. An ephemeral whimsy locked in amber.
From 2009 to 2013, I fulfilled a childhood dream and lived nomadically throughout Europe in a motorhome called “Nettle”. We – my partner and I – have since moved back to our home country of Australia and bought a 1920’s cottage, nestled in a temperate rainforest in the hills.
When I’m not painting and drawing, you can find me scribbling down slightly-too-dark-for-children notions for picture books, obsessively making plans for my dream cottage garden, or shamelessly indulging in TV marathons of my favourite geeky shows (Doctor Who, anyone? No? Buffy, BSG? I could keep going…)
