Artist bio

My art explores belonging, community and creativity. It tells a story we already know and share. A previous life in the Education sector ingrained in me a childlike view of the world, giving my art a broad range and sometimes unresolved edge.
I’m drawn to the colour and movement of water, the form of flowers, negative spaces where light seeps in and texture.
Art is a source of joy for me, it’s how I sing, dance and pray. I create to express emotion, share memories, for contemplation and ultimately as meditation. This is my social commentary.
My interest in the nature continually evolves and I find myself questioning the use of non-renewables in my practice. My process has always involved recycling and experimenting and these two aspects come together as I explore avenues for including waste materials from my home and studio in the art. As I move in this direction, I find expression through the creatures and environments that look to us, individually, for hope.

I create art because...

Art is how I sing, dance and pray.

I am different to most artists because...

I break all the rules and expect resin to make up for that.

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

Anything, just feel, but most of all I want you to feel a raw emotion.

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

everyone is an artist. The world is a creative space and our very existence in the world is part of that creation.

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

it allows us to step outside reality while sometimes telling the painful truth.
