Since completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts & a Class 1 Honours degree in painting at JCU, I have been developing & exhibiting my artwork for the past 24 years. Pursuing a career in visual arts, I have managed & facilitated many community art projects in Brisbane, working with children, adults & people with disabilities with a strong focus on  community engagement for painted public murals. My aim is to enrich the local community & increase a sense of cultural identity through art based projects.

I currently work as a freelance designer & mural painter, as well as a studio artist specialising in portrait & figurative commissions.My commitment to my arts practise inspires me to keep experimenting with new concepts to produce artwork for solo & group exhibitions. "Creativity has always been a way for me to explore my inner, emotional landscape. My paintings are snippets into my deeply personal world to express the feelings that are too huge for words alone. In this space I find a visual language to convey my experiences in an honest & authentic way.
