I am an Australian artist working primarily in watercolour and residing in the inner west suburbs of Sydney.
Drawing and creating has been my passion since my youth. I was able to feed this when studying fashion illustration, while completing a fashion design and textiles degree at the Whitehouse Institute of Design.
Taking an alternate path and following a family legacy, I pursued a career in the fashion industry for 10 years, working alongside talented and creative individuals within design teams. Trading the daily graphic drawing for a pencil and paints again, I turned my sights to my most admired mediums – watercolour.
I have had the pleasure of discovering the magic of watercolour, studying under tutor and mentor, Australian watercolour artist Joe Cartwright.
I produce artworks in a variety of subjects including: landscapes, street scenes, animals, architecture and sea.
