My work seems to have a particular focus on the feminine, perhaps due to the influence of growing up with 3 sisters. Although when I was young I wanted to be the brother in the family and was a dedicated tomboy, I’ve since learned to embrace the glory of being female. I’m particularly intrigued by the dynamics between women and men and enjoy exploring relationships and life from a woman's perspective through my art.
While I grew up in the Canadian badlands surrounded by prairies, it's the beach that inspires me. I currently reside on the Sunshine Coast of Australia where the beaches stretch for miles. Prior to moving here I lived in Italy, another place that greatly inspires me and my art.
In 2013 I opened my first solo exhibition in Palermo, Sicily, entitled ‘Boys & Girls, Girls, Girls‘ which featured surfing and the sea as it’s prominent theme, followed by ‘It Happened in Mondello‘ in 2014 which was a series of paintings set in the beach neighborhood of Palermo. My latest exhibitions have been with RAW Artists Australia in the Gold Coast in 2015 and Brisbane in 2019.
My background is in the animation industry and I've worked in a wide variety of roles and styles for television animation and illustration projects.
Now that I'm a mother and experiencing a whole new side to life and womanhood, I feel my inspirations and techniques solidifying into a unified vision for the images which I'm compelled to create.
