Hello and Welcome! ​ I couldn’t be more excited to finally be sharing my art with you. After a lot of procrastinating, self doubt, encouragement and excitement I finally decided to follow my heart and start painting. And boy am I glad I did! I love it. ​ To give you a little run down on who I am, I grew up in a very small country town in NSW and whilst I loved it, I always felt I needed to be living larger and exploring more so when I graduated high school I moved to Brisbane and have been here ever since. When I was 21 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and for the next 7 years I went in and out of remission. This experience changed the direction I had planned for myself. It taught me many valuable life lessons, to trust my intuition and gave me a better perspective on the things that are important to me. ​ I've had many jobs that left me feeling unhappy within myself because I wasn't doing anything that fulfilled my creative side. I've been lucky enough to finally pursue a career in art and design. Some of my favourite things in life are Mexican food, my beautiful children Jacob and Leila, my pug Kingston, cooking, ocean documentaries and the beach, ​ On a more personal level, I’m constantly trying to learn how to focus on things that really matter, like living intentionally, appreciating life and always taking a chance on myself particularly with my art. ​ ...more
