To touch a heart, to spin a dream, to share a thought, a love, a special memory, these are the things that make life meaningful.

I create nostalgic designs to give a sense of harmony. May Gibbs, Holly Hobbie and Margaret Keane are strong influences from childhood.

h3. About
As a child I loved fantasy illustrations I found comforting, and that took me on imaginary journeys and daydreams. I try to create art that has a similar effect on people.

My paintings might appear at times simplistic, but come about through lots of processing, combining things I’ve seen and heard, stories and images. I often draw on paper first, painting in layers over the drawing in Procreate for iPad. Other times, I draw and paint straight onto my iPad without any drawing underneath.

In a timepoor world, my intention is to relieve tension and support a restive transcendent moment where peace is found.

Some of the themes that run through my work include friendship, love, connection, beauty, balance, wellbeing, motherhood, childhood, nature, meditation, mindfulness, Australian landscape, melancholia, peace, transcendence, happiness, motherhood and wildlife.

Beach walks give me lots of inspiration and perspective.

Nature, the ocean and good news stories

I’m descended from John Constable and John Milton.

To live in a lighthouse on a remote mountain, leading a simple life with my best friend Scott.
