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.

12K Milestone

Today I’m celebrating reaching a great milestone of 12K sales through my online store at Redbubble since I joined way back over 9 years ago, in Feb 2008! Thanks to everyone for the great ongoing support over all the years. There have been triumphs and big bumps, leaps and hurdles, at times I’ve been laid low, but through it all I’ve persevered. Many times I’ve wanted to th…

What matters most

What matters most? / Is it Twitter impressions, Facebook views, Instagram likes? How heavily does our self worth rely on social media presence, online visibility and instant popularity? / Unfortunately, it can be a trap we fall into, if we have a small business that depends on how visible we are online. / I’m not here to tell you online presence doesn’t matter, because it is important…

How & Why I Created my NEW Tie Dye Collection

I’ve been very busy lately creating some tie dye look designs because they really appeal to me. I try to think about the products and what I myself would like to wear, and one of the things that came to mind, was that I love tie dye, but don’t have anything at all in my wardrobe you could classify as tie dye. Why not see whether I can actually create some myself, using other than tr…
