My owner-built studio features as one of my artworks, being partly constructed of mud dug from the surrounding environment. The spiral cob walls of the studio are designed around the golden mean so that the building relates itself to the natural environment and to the artwork produced within it.
The studio is open to the public.
My earliest memories of being obsessed with painting date back many years to about age four in kindergarten where we were allowed to do one painting a day. I always wanted to do more but was too shy to say so.
Fast forward to 2005 when I completed a degree in visual arts and began to change the balance between my practice as a psychologist and my arts practice in favour of the arts.
I adore abstract art and am captivated by colour and markmaking and immersing myself in the painting experience.
