Artist CV and Contact

A little background into my arts career would have to start with winning my first award at the age of 8 in Canada. I knew then that all I wanted to be was an artist, however becoming an International flight attendant along the way, it was only later that I was able to devote all of my time and passion towards the Arts.


After being positioned by the airline, falling in love with Australia, and an Australian man; found me now living in Sydney. Attending the National Art School, I feel blessed to have achieved a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction in painting, ceramics,printmaking and sculpture.

Being seduced by Portraiture and most recently upon losing my beloved little dog Suki, I happened upon the path of helping others preserve the memories of their loved ones. Let me help with a personalized painting of your pet, perhaps including the pets people; to show that special bond.

Alternately I am available for commissions including the landscape, with the sea and clouds being a specialty. Contact me and we can look at your space and do something specific just for you!
