Home is beautiful Sydney, in the Inner West where I live with my husband, our 3 daughters and our dog. I also live with a passion for colour, design and pattern. Nature has inspired me for as long as I can remember and I love being outdoors; Its where I get my creative energy. It’s my time to plot, plan and sketch for my next print, story or range.
So what inspires me about nature? It can be anything from the delicate and sculptural shapes of a flower, the fine veins on a leaf or the way opposite colours on a colour wheel are found on a plant and look perfect next to each other. My art teacher in high school really inspired me to observe the world around me. Her insight all those years ago instilled something in me that I still draw on today. Mixed with travel, the opportunity to see new places has inspired me to draw inspiration from other cultures too. What an incredible world that we live in.
I embraced technology a few years ago after seeing the amazing David Hockney, who began using an iPad as his new art medium at over 80 years of age. I was blown away by his skill and use of colour as well as the new concept of drawing with an app to create almost anything. It was a new beginning for me and I honestly haven’t looked back.
