Artist bio

I am a Melbourne based self-taught artist who loves to create using mixed media. My journey in art began when I was fighting with post natal depression. With minimal help from family, doctors and friends, I had to rely on three 'C's to fight back - Cuddles, Courage and Creating.

I love abstract and contemporary styles of art and therefore I have been developing them over the past few months. You will often find a lot of her work has natural and floral elements with texture, something that we can all connect to. I hope you would enjoy the visceral nature of it too.

I create art because...

it helps me maintain a healthy mental state and gives me strength to fight the scars from PND.

I am different to most artists because...

I am a bit selfish and I create for my own well being.

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

I hope to convey that the strength to overcome challenges lies within you. If I can fight and survive, we all can. Keep calm and carry on.

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

Life is too short to be criticizing. It is OK if you cannot connect with my creations. Thank you for trying. I genuinely hope that you find an artwork that moves you.

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

Your home and your words are a reflection of your soul. What we put up on our walls should be unique and an asset you feel proud about.
