About

Hello All,

I have been working as a full-time artist for the past 5 years.

I completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1991 and then didn’t use it for the next 20 years …….but now I do!

Working and living between Warrnambool Victoria and the Adelaide Hills of South Australia, I enjoy the uniqueness of the different landscapes and the small towns in-between.

I love to paint and create images with inspiration drawn from my surrounds, so you’ll see plenty of animals, native plants and seascapes as well as the odd abstract creation. My instinct is to paint in bright happy colours and for me the brighter the better, but having said that, I am now trying to learn how to paint in pastel colour tones for the faint-hearted.

I dabble in a variety of art genres but focus mainly on resin work and acrylics. I hand make pendants from my paintings which is a challenging technique I’ve developed over the past 5 years. Resin is  messy, fickle and frustrating to work with but I love it.  I also turn my paintings into different products for the tourism industry, such as cards and magnets as nothing beats Aussie made.

You’ll find my products on display in a variety of locations, and are available for purchase through the website, stockists or directly via contacting me.

If you’d like to stock my unique little products in your store, and I’m in your area, I’m happy to stop by and show you the range of items available. Alternatively bulk wholesale packs are available to purchase through this website or I’m happy to speak to you directly if you have something else in mind:)

Enjoy!
