Based in the Mount Barker, Western Australia, I completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) at Edith Cowan University, Perth in 2000. I am a contemporary landscape painter, developing works that are drawn from emotional responses to the landscape that surrounds me. I strive to evoke memory and emotion through intuitive layering and carving, evolving to become seductive and tactile works. Texture is a theme embedded in my practice, where I explore its dynamic potential through building up and carving back; a dance between control and unpredictability revealing the sculptural quality of wax, oil and pigment.  

I have been included in numerous group shows across Australia, including sixteen successful solo shows. In 2019 I had two solo exhibitions, 'Petrichor' & 'Seven Days' at Michael Reid Gallery in Murrurundi NSW. I was also selected as a finalist in the Ravenswood Womens Art Prize. Previously I have been selected for The Cossack Art Award (2017), Hunters Hill Art Exhibition (2017), Minnawarra Art Award (Overall winner-2017), City of Melville Art Award (Highly Commended-2016) and the Great Southern Art Award (Overall winner-2016). I featured in the Graziher Magazine 2018 Winter edition, celebrating rural Australian women. I was also the feature Artist for the Denmark WA Telethon home (2017).  My work is held in the collection of the Albany City Council.
