My authentic mixed media style artwork focuses on the beauty of nature: predominantly florals.
I translate delicate blooms using mixed media techniques and a feminine colour palette into works that enhance any home. Colour, shape and composition are key attributes in my unique works and it is the combination of these aspects that make my work highly recognisable.
I am proudly self-taught and have spent many years working through the intricacies of learning colour mixing, product application and developing a professional art practice. I am forever grateful for the support of my husband and children in allowing me to follow my dream.
Before painting as a full time artist I spent 25 years fostering a career in marketing and communications. During this time I met my future husband; we married and started a family. Throughout this time I grabbed spare hours whenever I could to paint. I often painted late into the night – with the purpose of keeping my artist dream alive.
My work can be found at a few select galleries throughout New Zealand and I also sell work directly. Exhibiting is a true passion of mine, starting when I showed my first piece at the NZ Academy of Fine Arts at the age of 18. Whether I am showing one artwork or an entire body of work I find the process highly satisfying. I love the thrill and anticipation of opening nights!
I am proud to showcase my available and commissioned artwork.
