Artist. Creator of the 'Song Of My Heart' Oracle Deck. 

 

I STARTED DRAWING WAY BACK IN THE DAY. BEFORE COMPUTERS, TABLETS AND IPADS WERE A BLIP OF DATA ON THE HORIZON. TRADITIONAL DRAWING WITH PENCIL AND PAPER STILL HOLDS MY HEART.

 

I try to create work that can reasonate within the viewer. To make art that shows the diversity and strength of women in our world. To be an active part and consciously contribute to the betterment of society by empowering women in all their forms. 

I obsess over tarot decks, adore ink - both tattoo and in it's luscious liquid form. I prefer tea over coffee, have a serious pencil addiction, love textured paper especially when combined with watercolour paint by the pencil, tin or tube. Last but not least, I think I'm hilarrrrious!

A two time cancer survivor the humourous often macabre, pop surrealism art movement, features strongly in both my head and art style.

Current questions requiring answers in my life are:  What effect does oreo chocolate have on my life? Can I even sew in a straight line? What weird things can I use to create mixed media pieces? The biggy, the question that is a constant presence lately, how can there be a pet goat in my future? If you have these or any other answers to life's great mysteries - please do get in touch!
