I am a visual artist living on the north coast of NSW, Australia, who likes to see the beauty in life and can only hope that my art reflects this. I am deeply inspired by nature, the Orient, Art Nouveau, Picasso, Ancient History, and the patterns and designs found in different cultures.

My art has no set boundaries, and I use a variety of tools and mediums in the creative process.

I have a Bachelor Of Arts with a double major (Fine Art and Visual Culture).
