My Book Beyond the Stick Figure now available as an eBook, hardcover and softcover here http://au.blurb.com/b/3204165-beyond-the-stick-...

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.

Process
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.

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

Themes
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.

Hobbies
Beach walks give me lots of inspiration and perspective.

Inspiration
Nature, the ocean and good news stories

Ancestors
I’m descended from John Constable and John Milton.

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

As an artist, do you ever have regrets?

As an artist, do you ever have regrets? Tonight I was reminded for some reason, of a very dear friend, who has since passed. He was a brilliant writer, and although much older than I, he had a youthfulness about him, a mischievous gleam in his eye, and I really took a liking to, no, a loving to him. To me, he had a place in my heart, that I would generally keep reserved for a wise old uncle. H…

My Redbubble Sales Statistics incl Profits from 2008 to 2018

Hey there everyone, so good to be back to Redbubble after some time away, with a renewed sense of energy. Unfortunately, my darling husband suffered a stroke recently (he’s doing very well) but it had the effect of upturning our world for a while, and I’ve been unable to get back in touch with my art, so meanwhile, I’ve been doing a lot of photography, while we embarked on a ne…
