Originally from Brisbane, I attended the Brisbane Institute of Art (BIA) for several years studying portraiture, abstraction, still life, and oil painting. I moved to the Sunshine Coast hinterland several years ago; and find the scenery elevating and the artistic community stimulating. Working in different mediums including oil paints, pastels, and mixed media, I use light and its contrasting dark as inspiration for my work.
As a member of Arts Connect Inc, I enjoy mixing with other artists, and help to organise exhibitions as a committee member. Participating in group exhibitions at the BIA and as part of Arts Connect allows me to exhibit my work in different regions. In 2014, I was shortlisted for the Milburn Art Prize in Brisbane. I also won the Still Life Prize as part of the Real Foods Festival in Maleny in 2013.
