Hey there! Welcome to my site! I am passionate about helping people find their creative voice.
I currently own a gallery in the Dandenong Ranges, Melbourne, Australia where I teach painting and other creative courses both in my studio and online! My career began when I became a finalist in the Tasmanian Glover Prize in 2013 & in the Fleurieu Art Prize in Adelaide. I have also held numerous exhibitions over the years and produced 2 books and many online courses based on my works and have been featured in numerous publications both in Australia and overseas.

Having grown up in rural Victoria and then lived in Tasmania for almost 20 years, nature and community has been a big part of my world. When I burnt out many years ago, I needed something to help me find comfort and direction. I fell in love with painting nature in a photorealistic way during this time, then went on to teach others.

Space jump 10 years or so I now have over 100 students a week, many who have said painting has changed their lives, as it did mine! I have many stories to share and look forward to connecting with you through these online courses! Hope you can join me.
