I grew up on a farm in country Victoria with four sisters also into art, lots of dogs, cats and parents who encouraged our artistic endeavours. I don’t remember a time that didn’t involve art and lots of drawings of animals, people and nature. Not a lot has changed, these are still my favourite subjects. I enjoy working in different mediums as the inherent nature of each medium gives a totally different feeling to the subject. I chose printmaking when doing my BA in fine art at Victoria College and I've recently returned to that medium, specifically lino printing. I love the bold graphic effect and especially the surprise element that is uncovered when printing.
I am lucky to have a Kelpie-cross dog who has been the inspiration for many recent drawings, paintings and prints. I find her the perfect muse to convey what I want to explore in my work. In these pieces I try to capture a state of being expressed by the relationship between my dog and the surrounding space. I hope my work captures the soulfulness and essence of the animals and natural beauty that I am so grateful to be surrounded by.
