My art is inspired by endless coastlines, colorful reefs, tropical Australian birds, and abstract color. I want my images to make your dream of the beach, a tropical escape, and the natural environment.
There was a time I hit rock bottom after a tumultuous relationship break drown that broke my heart. One night I woke up and reached over to my partner saying that I had a nightmare that we’ve broken up, but he wasn’t there. I looked at my hand reaching out to the empty space next to me and I just knew that I had to grab a pencil and start drawing.
I started with a pencil sketch of my hand reaching into nowhere, followed by emotional watercolor paintings that reflected our relationship. I painted through the darkness to a happier headspace. From then on I started to paint happy, bright, and colorful pieces.
I work using acrylic paint, ink, and watercolor. These mediums are excellent for accentuating the bright colors and effects I like to use in my artwork.
I hope that my artwork can connect to others and provide emotional support. My art helps me move forward in difficult times and brightens my day. My wish is that it may also do this for others.
