I’m a Bay of Islands based Kiwi girl, artist and creativepreneur, with big dreams. I am a mum to three beautiful lap warmers in the form of two dogs and a cat. I love the beach and prefer hibernating during the New Zealand winters. Obsessed with painting, chocolate and wearing blue jeans.
Most days, you’ll find me in comfy jeans in the art room with a smile on my face and fur babies at my feet. I’m a kiwi girl who developed a love for art as far back as I can remember. I use mainly acrylic on canvas or hardboard and fell in love with painting when I realized I could create something physical and tangible but also emotional and spiritual on canvas.
Currently, my subject matter focuses mainly on animals and pet portraits, a subject very close to my heart, and I try to convey the individuality and inner personality of every one of them.
My art style? It’s raw, real and authentic. I am forever learning and trying new techniques, mediums, and subjects. Inspired by light, movement, color combinations, and patterns, I try to incorporate these elements to form my own style.
Years from now, I want to look back at my paintings and have all these memories come flooding back on things I tried and loved and pets I’ve captured and come to know.
