My works have been described as calm, feminine, flowing and layered. I generally work on a series exploring a theme or a technique. And for this reason, my works range from abstract fluid acrylics which reference my local landscapes, to large botanical works focusing on the beauty and awesome colors of Australian flora. Color and negative space are always pivotal to the composition of my work.
I also do a limited number of commissions each year. If you would like to have a work made specifically for you, please send me a message. I am currently taking bookings for 2022.
I have also been creating a studio and gallery in my shed. It is still a work in progress but I am having a lot of fun making a welcoming space for myself and visitors. I am part of an exciting collaboration with 4 other artists in my area called Hidden Gems Artist Studios. We are opening our home studios on the first weekend of each month. I hope you will get an opportunity to visit soon.
In December 2018, I opened my studio and gallery space in the heart of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia, thanks to Ballarat Evolve . This is a program placing small creative industries into vacant spaces in the Ballarat CBD for 12 months. This was a great success and a wonderful experience. I am so delighted that the lovely landlords have allowed me to continue to use the space to exhibit my work. So if you can't get out to Haddon, you can see my work in the Block Arcade, Ballarat. I also sell my work through Bluethumb Online Gallery, a great option if you are in other parts of Australia or overseas.
