Hi hello! Welcome and thanks for dropping by....
I feel like I have been an artist all my life. I was born in Zimbabwe, Africa to two beautifully creative humans, who love life and gifted me with a yearning for knowledge, beauty and truth. When I was nine years old, my family travelled through Europe, on a kind of 'lets see everything' pilgrimage, I fell in love, so deeply, with art and the rest as they say.. is history.
Now based in the beautiful small city, Newcastle in Australia, I make art, I draw and paint, study, research and explore the recipes and techniques once used by artists throughout the centuries. Sometimes feeling more like a chef than a modern day painter, I work with deliciously luscious ingredients..eggs, vodka, walnuts, pomegranates..and more. Every day in the studio is an exhilarating learning experience, as I explore the chemistry, the botanics of painting and turn it into new art.
What a wonderful world!
