“DON’T LET ANYONE ROB YOU OF YOUR IMAGINATION, YOUR CREATIVITY, OR YOUR CURIOSITY. IT’S YOUR PLACE IN THE WORLD; 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 have a diploma in Holistic Integrated Art Therapy
I have trained as a Heart Math Facilitator.
I am an encourager of personal development, self discovery and expression through art.
Hi! I’m Rose.
I reside in the beautiful sunny city of Brisbane Australia.
If I were to label myself, I would say I am a multipotentialite which means I have many different pursuits and creative interests.
I am an ARTIST and PHOTOGRAPHER AND HOLISTIC INTEGRATED ART THERAPIST, while also being a compassionate human being with a love for life and this world we live in.
So first to talk about my ART…………
I create paintings with a playful and experimental approach.
I place a huge value on creativity, not just as means of expression, but as an innate quality in all humans. Once we tap back into our own creativity, we can live a joyful, and fulfilled life.
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, and art is life. So what we do in art does 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!
The stories behind my art are based on the journey of releasing ourselves from societal conditioning and the expectations of others, and my belief that play is imperative to a healthy, inspiring and creative life.
I paint in the style of abstract expressionism making intuitive 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, while keeping the essence of playfulness alive.
My goal is for my artwork to inspire your own creative expression, evoke deep conversations and connections with other humans, and to restore a sense of play in your life.
I am passionate about helping others move forward in their life and out of a feeling of “stuckness”. I love inspiring and empowering people to move past their own conditioning and lead an empowered and fulfilling life.
You are worth it and your life is worth it.

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 love the ability to capture the essence of nature, colours and movements in an image and in my spare time I find it hard not to capture the world with my camera.
