Artist statement

My art is inspired by the magical things hiding between the leaves, grass blades, and flower petals in our gardens, and by the spaces between the stars and the clouds.

I’m eternally inspired by nature, and want to communicate and capture the wonder and whimsy I feel when surrounded by my photosynthetic friends. 

I create collages from upcycled children’s books, particularly using illustrations by Shirley Barber, Enid Blyton, and Beatrix Potter.

I love to experiment and explore different styles. However I especially love gouache painting and collaging.

I’m also a qualified florist, and love creating arrangements and installations using foraged Australian foliage.
