I'm an Australian living in South Orange, New Jersey since 2012 (I know that's a big move). I live with my Irish husband, our two Australian children, two cats, one dog and some fish. Moving to the other side of the world has been one of the biggest adventure of my life!
As an artist I love to work across different mediums: pencil, pen, ink, gouache, oil, acrylic, collage digital, paper clay...you name it I love to give it a go. I am also an art book and art supply addict!
Frequenting art galleries from a young age led me to study fine art history at Sydney University in the late 80s. I was intrigued with art incorporating collage which influenced me to start making mixed media work. My other creative infatuation has been illustration and animation. I studied a Post Grad Dip.of Film & TV in Animation at VCA in Melbourne, Australia and then a Masters of Animation at UTS, Sydney, Australia.
For many years I worked as a graphic designer. I moved from hand and computer layout of weekly music and entertainment newspapers in the 90s through to website design in the dot boom and into creating animated web content.
My work is inspired by nature and a love of spirituality. From creating surreal images of women and nature to creating illustrations for children and the young at heart my work is infused with story, detail and fanciful places.
Since moving to NJ I have been lucky to work illustrating children's learn to read books for Multilit and to regularly exhibit in group art exhibitions.
Creating images is my passion and it is my way of singing to the world. I hope you like the tunes.
