TO MY ONLINE
“ Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand ...
when it is simply necessary to love.”
I am a contemporary Australian painter and ceramic artist. My studio is in Sydney, close to the sea and provides me with endless inspiration to do what I love – create beautiful art - for others to love!
My passion for art commenced at an early age. By 16, my imposing life size sculpture of a nude woman, won the highly acclaimed ArtExpress Award and was an amazing debut into the world of art.
The annual ArtExpress touring exhibition includes the prestigious Art Gallery of New South Wales and I still vividly recall my excitement and proud parents.
With a degree in Visual Arts and Ceramic Design, some thirty years later, I am so fortunate that art has always been a big part of my life. I thank my friends, family and loyal clients who have supported me!
I have held 12 solo exhibitions and have been represented in numerous group exhibitions in major art galleries, notably The Blaxland Gallery, The Holdsworth Fine Art Galleries in both Woollahra and the QVB, Sydney.
I continue to work on private and corporate commissions with my work represented in collections throughout Australia, USA, New Zealand, France, Italy, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and Portugal.
Today my artworks are purchased online or directly from my studio by established clientele and a well fuelled referral base.
My work is often about my memories or feelings, rather than what I see. I love to sculpt, pot and paint and I feel so honoured and humbled that friends, family and clients enjoy showcasing my art in their homes and offices.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my online gallery!
