A regional upbringing in Cowra, NSW and university schooled in Wagga Wagga I was eventually drawn to life in Sydney. Gaining experience in the graphic design industry then led to adventures further afield in Chicago, USA and Singapore. I learned and adapted to each new environment. Working as a graphic designer, raising a family, and travelling took up all my time.
2015 saw the start of a new phase of my life… and I began to take my personal art projects more seriously when returning to Australia after 10 years of living overseas. Attending art retreats with ‘The Creative Collective’ at Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon Trust, Shoalhaven, short courses at the National Art School, Darlinghurst and Art Est. Art School in Leichhardt has led me to learn more about the process of making art, make connections with other artists and build my confidence in sharing the results.
I have participated in a number of group shows, both in the Blue Mountains and Sydney, with my first solo exhibition, Discovering the Blue Labyrinth opening at the end of March in Braemar Gallery, Springwood.
