about me

I have been painting and drawing on and off,  in a variety of styles and mediums throughout my life. However during the past decade, I became quite prolific which led me to move to the Sunshine Coast, early in 2018 to fulfill a lifetime passion for art.


My early careers were in the entertainment industry as a dancer, actress, voice-over artist and teacher of performing arts. I also spent many yearsin the  legal  field and in advertising.This then led to a lengthy career as a graphic designer. 


My first art exhibition (26 large works) was held at the Sydney Dance Company in the early 1990s and another at the Mark Julian Gallery, in Glebe. 


I also entered quite a number the prestigious Advertising Art Auctions where the funds were raised in support of The Sydney Children’s Hospital.


Art is my healing place and the beautiful Sunshine Coast constantly offers inspiration. Always challenging myself, I like to paint the land, the sea, the body, portraits and still life. 


Open to commissions - All enquiries are welcome.
