You show a particular interest in aerial cityscapes, why is that?
I love challenging what we see every day and providing the viewer with a new way to look at the world. My latest series is called Tiny Planet, creating a fun view of cityscapes and making a particular landscape appear at the centre of the world. All my artworks are very colourful and easily recognisable.
How long have you been a practicing artist?
I taught art in secondary schools in Queensland for eight years before starting my own art business in 2003. I have been teaching art privately, running workshops, painting commissions and exhibiting now for 16 years and am so happy that I made the jump from working in the Education Department to working for myself.
When did you first fall in love with art?
I have always loved to draw and create. I loved art in high school and knew that it was what I wanted to do with my life. I love that I can now inspire others to find their inner artist and enjoy creating as much as I do. It’s not work when you’re doing something you love.
When is your favourite time to paint?
I find I am most creative in the afternoons and evenings. However, once I start painting any time of day it is easy to get lost in the process and lose time.
