artist biography

I am a wood burning artist based in Perth, Western Australia. My work has been exhibited and acquired by various organisations and private collections throughout Western Australia. I have a Bachelor of Design and Master of Teaching (Primary) from The University of Western Australia.

My artwork has always focused on everyday subjects and experiences, and I typically celebrate the beauty of everyday living through a diverse range of media and textures. I love to using my woodburning tool, which was originally introduced to me by my late grandfather, Generally, my work is textured and vibrant, and I frequently incorporate found artefacts and organic materials into the pieces. I am currently still obsessed with Australian plants and wildflowers, which often feature in my handmade gifts and wares. My work is currently being stocked in a few wineries and art shops in WA and am always interested in discussing other new opportunities and ideas.

I currently live in Perth, WA with James, and McNulty the Dalmatian. I create from my home studio. Most of my work is created on a made-to-order basis. I am an artist by night and a primary school teacher by day. I generally complete orders within 2 weeks.
