Capturing memories and moments in paint
Hi and welcome to my online art gallery. I’m a graphic designer of 20+ years who also loves to draw, paint and write. Like many designers I discovered my career through a childhood love of art. Design lead me on a different path and life got busy, so painting was soon forgotten. Then came 2020. While many Aussies turned to baking sourdough (I hate cooking), I asked for a canvas for my birthday. I walked past it for 9 months, too intimidated by the blank surface to pick up the paint brush, until one morning I did … and I haven’t stopped since.
Life is full of seasons and I’m excited to be painting once again, with the attention to detail, composition and colour honed from years of design. I like to capture light and the beauty in the everyday – details we often miss in the day-to-day rush. Botanicals, landscapes and still life – l love it all! I also paint commissions, preserving memories and moments in paint. Objects can evoke such vivid memories and help preserve important stories. Seeing the reaction of recipients as they receive their custom painting is such a joy. Paintings make great gifts – especially for those hard to buy for friends and family. If you can’t decide on the subject matter you can purchase a gift voucher. From capturing a much-loved pet, favourite travel destination, house portrait, garden bloom, or a special heirloom tea cup, the options are endless.
Current paintings for sale are listed below. I’ve also included a selection of past work in the gallery section. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, or for information about commissioning a custom painting. Please allow 3–4 weeks for commissions (time and cost dependant on size and complexity).
