  • Artist’s Statement

    With a background in film and television, arts management and marketing, I have been engaged in creative pursuits for my entire career. Although I didn’t start to exhibit my work until 2012, I have always been passionate about painting. I love strong colour and texture and my work has been described as expressionistic and painterly.
    I stage at least one solo exhibition each year and my subject matter changes regularly. I find myself drawn to diverse themes and areas of interest however flowers and animals are reoccurring themes. My work often has dramatic lighting and can be quite theatrical at times.
    Based in Sydney, Australia, I work from a home studio that I built in my attic. It is a quirky, light-filled space with lovely tree-top views - a great place to spend time creating art. I favour painting in acrylic, because of the quick drying time, vibrant colours as well as the textural quality.

    I have been selected as a finalist in the Mosman, Hornsby, Lane Cove and Northbridge Art prizes to name a few. My paintings are held in private collections in Italy, France, Germany, USA and throughout Australia.
