I am an abstract painter, creative educator and occasional embroiderer living in Melbourne with my two teenage sons.

Painting has always been my way of making sense of the world and my experience of life. It gives me energy and feelings of calm in equal measures.

The act of creating something beautiful out of ‘nothing’ is addictive. I hope to share this joy with you.


Go to colour: depending on my mood, usually a soft but rich pale blue-green grey, often paired with a set of brights: pinks, oranges and yellows.

Place I’d move to in a flash: {if I could take all my friends and family}: Goteborg
