Living beachside with my beautiful Son, I work from a little studio based in our garden.
With a focus on whimsical yet vibrant florals, I am always busy designing & creating original watercolour artworks & art prints, stationery, illustrating children’s books, bead jewellery plus a t-shirt range.
I worked for around 4 years in the Graphic Design industry, focusing on my art part time until I was ready to take the plunge to working on it full time. The ultimate dream has always been to be home full time as a mother and artist. (Which is now a reality!)
My life currently consists of…
- Full time Mumma! This being a mum gig is my absolute FAVOURITE thing in the world. I find it so fulfilling putting so much of my love and time into such a beautiful being. We do everything together so you will usually find us at the beach, in the garden, cooking wholefood goodies in the kitchen or playing diggers in a dirt heap somewhere!
- Painting, designing & creating from my home studio. In 2019 I had a little studio built in our garden. It is wonderful to have a space where I can get into the flow of it all.
Inspired by wild flowers, floral wallpapers, embroidery books & repeated patterns found in nature. Sometimes I can go for weeks without painting, I have found it is important not to push myself at these times. It feels like my creative bottle is filling up with inspiration – I just have to wait for the right moment to unscrew the lid and let it all burst out on to paper! With my larger works, they feel like ‘healing’ pieces – that I am channeling something higher through on to paper – for the perfect person to own.
