With a family history on the land, I am inspired by nature, as demonstrated by my oils of environmental lanscape series.
The influence of my upbringing and times riding my horse through the Austtralian countryside inspire my work, also the bush and grasslands of the Surf Coast, beach walks and trips to Central Australia etc.
I am renowned for my nest paintings in watercolour and oil.
Work has previously been showcased in a series of solo exhibitions at Tacit Contemporary Art Gallery and Corio Bay Rowing Club with oils, watercolours and linocuts. Solo exhibition 'Brushstrokes' at Tacit Art Galleries.
Also exhibited at group exhibitions Chapman + Bailey "Bella Arti" 2016 ('Nest', Oil on canvas; sold), Tacit Contemporary Gallery "Editions" 2014 (Linocuts), and other local shows. Geelong Art Society, Anglesea Art Space "Women of the Hinterland" 2018, Riverlee at the Globe" 2018.
I have entered portraits into the Archibald 2016 and Doug Moran 2017 National Portrait Prize (semi finalist) that were both selected to be shown in both 2016 and 2018 at The Victorian Salon des Refuses : Hidden Faces
Awarded Best Natural Environment for 'Nest' (Oil on canvas) at the Angair Exhibition 2016.
Awarded Best OIl in Show for 'Anglesea River' (Oil on canvas) at the Anglesea Art Show 2018.

I strive to create peaceful art works that reflect the places and things I love - showing natural light at different times of day and seasons.
