A Sydney based artist, I grew up in inner-city Glebe in a small sandstock brick terrace with a tin roof and a tea tree out the front. My mum encouraged creativity in our home and painting, pottery or papier-mâché often took the place of homework after school. I knew I wanted to be an artist back then, but it took a few different careers in design (Interior & Graphic Design), two kids and numerous life events to make me realise I actually need to create art.
I’m inspired by the curiosities of the world, especially other people and find the creation of art a way to unpack and process some of those weird and wonderful things that keep me up at night.
I’m currently working with pastel and pencil on paper and enjoying pushing and playing with these materials to achieve new textures and colour gradients. My work uses vivid colour and bold lines and is influenced by growing up in the 1980's and my favourite artists Reg Mombassa, Ken Done & Keith Haring.
2020 will be a big year and see my very first solo exhibition 'Stories of Strangers' at the Artspace on the concourse in March/ April and I also hope to secure an artist residency toward the end of the year.
