In the studio
I am an Australian artist exploring the land, the figure and the flower.
Referencing traditional Japanese calligraphy, I combine my fascination of fluid forms with my knowledge and passion of colour. My style is clean but lyrical and gives notion to a previous career in illustration; I continue to engage with this interesting tension between art and design through my semi-abstract paintings. My work is full of movement and rhythm, juxtaposing vibrant and muted tones as part of my continuous study of colour.
Based in Albury on the border of Victoria and New South Wales, I have worked in the creative industries for over 30 years. Originally training as a graphic designer, I have also freelanced as an interior design consultant and calligrapher. I have always had an eye for detail that suited a career in the arts.
Since my first solo exhibition in 2015, I continue to exhibit several times a year and my work has been featured in publications such as Belle, The Design Files and Est Living. I also tutor at the Murray Art Museum Albury, a role I relish as an opportunity to provide the guidance I wish I had at the start of my own artistic journey. My work is available to purchase and I accept a limited number of private commissions each year.
