I have had a long, flirtatious relationship with art. Throughout the years, I have enjoyed workshops in watercolour, oils, and acrylics. In 2019, I became more dedicated, embracing the mentorship of a local, established artist Jacqui Stockdale, and working weekly from her studio in Fitzroy, Melbourne.

2020’s isolation has provided the right circumstances to become intentional about my art. I have used this time at home to focus on portraiture and figure work, studying online workshops with Michael Carson, Sarah Sedwick, and participating in online life drawing through the National Portrait Gallery and The Art Room.
