I am an artist currently based in Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia.

I first began painting with pastels on paper, then moved to painting on textiles such as silk and cotton. For the past twelve years, I have been working with acrylics on canvas.

The images, light, colour and emotion experienced on my daily walks are used as the starting point for my work. The paintings reflect a sense of joy and wonder in the beauty found not just in the subject, but also in the process of painting itself.
