Growing up in South Africa with a father as an artist, creativity and nature surrounded me. I learnt to appreciate the beauty and colour that made up my childhood. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Education in Auckland, New Zealand. Moving to Perth, my passion for art, design and interior styling, lead me to complete a Diploma in Interior Design while working as an art teacher. With the arrival of my first child, time at home allowed me to explore graphic design.
I am now living in Shanghai with my two crazy boys and amazing husband. A once in a lifetime opportunity presented itself as an Art Director and Art Teacher. I am a huge believer in working hard to achieve dreams.
My work has evolved from purely digital drawings, to mixed media, where I now combine both acrylic paints and digital art. Large scale florals, thick, textured brush strokes, dripping paint on a subdued pastel or contrasting dark, moody background is my signature style. I am loving the creative process at the moment and am experimenting with still life’s for the modern women.
Colourful, bold, feminine, chic, fun, relaxed, luxe, a calm palette with a pops of colour, rich earthy tones, organic shapes, dusty pinks are all words that sing to me when painting or drawing a new piece. XX
