I see myself as an interior artist that creates a personal work of art for the client that gels with existing furniture and decor, a piece of art that has meaning to the beholder. I love working on large oversized canvasses, impasto textured paintwork or painting murals, I am confident and experienced to work with different mediums, either hand building with clay, hand painted ceramics, mosaics or sketching. My art work features in many private homes throughout Australia. and I have recently sold my art through Xavier furniture Perth. My ceramic work has been published and has inspired on a global scale. As an artist I embrace what ever is given to me and over the past 25 years I have certainly had a colourful life with a variety of experiences from teaching ceramics, mosaics, voluntary teaching clay work to year 8 students at Alyangula area school, Groote Eylandt, Northern Territory. My work also includes renovating homes throughout Australia, 1 in Melbourne, 4 in Sydney, 1 in Brisbane and 1 in Perth, then styling interiors and creating the art work for each home to sell the lifestyle. I am a hands on girl, from demolishing walls to building stone walls and landscaping gardens. I have also owned and operated an Art Studio Gallery in Sydney's North Shore, One day i was approached by a client whom asked if I could paint an urn for her father who had passed, I felt honoured that she had so much faith in me. And another memorable moment was a client that approached me and commissioned me to paint a mural in her child's bedroom, her young daughter was too scared to sleep on her own and her siblings were tired of her sleeping in their beds, so my client was now an adorable 4.year old, we sat down together and spoke about her favourite things and created a teddy bears picnic on every inch of the walls and ceiling in her bedroom. Mission accomplished, one extremely happy 4 year old and her siblings moved into her room. So I am truely passionate about art and the process, we all need a splash of fun and colour in our lives.
