Based in Adelaide since 2014, I am passionate about maintaining a faith-filled, creative life inspired by the beautiful lands that I have walked on, from the mossy green woodlands of Ireland and Germany to the dry Barossa, Flinders Ranges and the McLaren Vale area of South Australia. I hope my artwork inspires you to create!
I love to sit and create anywhere; my garden, a rented studio space, my kitchen table or in an old garage. It doesn’t matter where, just SOMEWHERE where I can be free to make a mess and have time to focus engraving decorative wood panels, lino printing, gilding, or painting. Sometimes I combine all these mediums, sometimes I focus only on one. My happy place is where I come to life making my creative ideas and feelings into reality, processing the world around me. I’m intrigued by creation’s PATTERNS, DESIGNS and COLOUR and I value the craftsmanship of Fine Art processes since completing my BA of Fine Art in Ireland in 2000. Alongside creating art, I am a wife, musician and a mum of 3 kids so I have learned to organize my time around building a creative lifestyle and balancing running a household, a job in aged care and keeping those creative juices flowing.
