Hello …I am an Australian artist, primary teacher, wife and Mother (of three boisterous boys!)
My husband and I are avid travellers, and take our boys with us to see as many places and cultures as possible. We have lived in Italy, and learned Italian at the Universita per Stranieri, as my husband has Italian family. We love skiing. Japan is our favourite destination, not only for the powder snow, but the beautiful culture. We live on the Sunny Gold Coast near the beach and I am the only girl in a house of boys including my sweet lop-eared bunny Teddy and his bestie our dog Arlo.
The Grand-daughter of a dressmaker, I grew up in old-fashioned handmade dresses stitched for me with love. I am currently designing textiles collections exclusively listed with Hawthorne Supply Co in New York, USA. As a boy mumma, it is so fun to see little girls twirling in hand made dresses featuring my art! It is a dream come true. When I was a little girl I loved wandering among reams of fabrics rolls stacked neatly in bins with my Grandma.
I gather inspiration for my art from sweet vintage ephemera, wildflowers, and beautiful things in nature. I hope my art brings you as much joy as painting it brings me!
