“DON’T LET ANYONE ROB YOU OF YOUR IMAGINATION, YOUR CREATIVITY, OR YOUR CURIOSITY. IT’S YOUR PLACE IN THE WOLRD; IT’S YOUR LIFE. GO ON AND DO ALL YOU CAN WITH IT, AND MAKE IT THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE.” - MAE JEMISON
I reside in the beautiful sunny city of Brisbane Australia.
I am an ARTIST and HOLISTIC INTEGRATED ART THERAPIST.
I aspire to live a life filled with fun and laughter, to love with abandon, to connect with nature, to inspire creativity, appreciate beauty in its many forms, to embody authentic feminine expression, create deep magical moments with other humans. to keep growing and evolving, to develop and follow my intuition and to breathe in the sunset often....
I was the painfully quiet shy girl in grade 1. All through school I was the girl in the background just listening, or sitting in the corner. In high school I was lucky I have a wonderful group of friends who gave me the opportunity to be “not so quiet”.
It’s taken me a while and a lot of growth to now realise that my place is not in the corner. I have a voice and I have opinions and I have knowledge that is worth sharing with the world.
I have passion - so much passion for embracing the wildness of the creative spirit.
I have yearnings - yearnings for an inspired life filled with love, laughter and connection.
I have an incredible thirst for learning. I love to learn what helps me grow as a person. I believe children have an innate ability to learn, and if we foster and nurture it, and provide a safe space for them to experience all of their feelings they will grow into amazing compassionate adults who will naturally find their way in the world.
I am acutely aware of the constraints that we feel from society. The feeling of needing to conform, not rock the boat, to get a responsible job, a house. You get it, you know what I mean, right?
I am a believer of creating our reality, but also believe we need to heal our wounded bodies and hearts to embrace all that we are.
My art pieces have been described as EXPRESSIVE PLAYFUL AND DYNAMIC
I paint in the style abstract expressionism making large and small intuitive gestural strokes, marks, and splashes with a random assortment of brushes and tools. Essentially I am transferring my most authentic expression onto the canvas using paint, charcoal or whatever medium I can get my hands on! I believe in NO RESTRICTIONS when creating art. This is where I find it easy in life to BREAK THE RULES! I also believe life is art, art is life. So what we do in art can translate into our life! And for someone that grew up doing the right thing ALL THE TIME, breaking a few rules might be a good thing!
Photography and I go back a long way - to the days when I was a young girl, spending time underneath our house printing images on my Dad’s darkroom equipment. I have professionally photographed wedding, families, newborns and food! I particularly love bring life into images through abstract photography.
I am passionate about CREATIVITY and am inspired to us ART as a means of expression, not just for myself but also to help empower others so they can lead an empowered and fulfilling life. To find out more about ART THERAPY click here.
