I discovered my passion for painting over a decade ago when I paused my engineering career to care for my family. Since then, I have been constantly developing my skills under the guidance of accomplished Australian and International artists, most recently attending workshops in the USA. I choose subjects that relate to a lived experience, forming an emotional connection to the piece. The unique and abundant beauty of the Australian landscape, flora and fauna provide an endless source of such inspiration. I aim to capture a moment that evokes a multi-sensory response from viewers that resonates on a deeper level. My art is an expression of things that I love.
