“I enjoy creating beautiful and detailed portraits of imaginary women in imaginary worlds that celebrate the feminine spirit. My ‘girls’ are often accompanied by elements of nature, fantasy and items from bygone eras.
My colour palette is mostly soft, subdued pastels, and my mediums include pencil, pastel, watercolour and acrylic. To further enhance the mystery, my girls are often fading into or out of the background, as if they are nearly there, speaking to you from a distant place.
I am represented by Thinkspace Gallery US, Just Another Agency AU and Illustration Ltd Worldwide, a member of PRISMA Artist Collective and an advocate with Element Eden.
Whilst I love creating my girls, I also enjoying experimenting in all creative forms including abstract painting, exploring colour, texture, pattern and various subject matters. You can read more about The Experiments (here).”
