IMG_0806_BIO SHOT.jpg


- Expressionist Artist from Sydney, Australia, painting in Madison Al where I live with my Alabama-born husband

- I hold a BA Business & Creative Communications, from UTS Sydney, 2008   

- Worked 12 years in the Australian Creative Brand Design industry including award winning projects for the prestigious Designworks and Frost Collective*

- Moved to expressive fine arts in 2017 to use color and movement as a way to help people reconnect to something beautiful inside and out


- Spent 6 years prolifically painting collections, learning about paint and the art industry, and finding what I loved and didn't love in my work

- After the completion of Abstract Art School in 2022, I shifted to full-time fine art because of a deep commitment to the process and the impact I have witnessed from the work within individuals and communities

My vision is to create large scale expressive works that genuinely uplift individuals, while bringing Huntsville a taste of the art world I experienced during my time living in Sydney, Melbourne, London and Paris. 

yes, all by choice!


- 2017, First oil collection selected for solo show in Colorado Springs (and first sold artwork!)

- 2018, First large-scale private commission 

- 2019, selected to paint 10 piece series for commercial space  


- 2020, Gallery representation in Fort Collins

- 2020, Second large scale oil collection and major sale

- 2021, Near sell-out oil painting collection including 3 international collectors

- 2021, Two large-scale paintings purchased for Sydney CBD Legal Firm space

- 2022, Completion of Nicholas Wilton Art School

- 2022, 4 large scale commissions by international collectors

- 2023, Solo show with and representation by Peach Tree & Co Huntsville

- 2023, Large Scale Paintings & Curation of First Collaborative Show with ceramic artist Jordyn Brummett - over 100 guests


- 2023, having 4 artworks selected and now represented by Anthropologie - two of which are now on their best selling list. 

- Building my local collector list from 0 to over a 100 in just over a year



Saddened by an article suggesting the diminishing use of color in our world due to mental overwhelm, The Other Side of Blue is a three part series, exploring the way color can shift and reconnect viewers to uplifting States of being - the final part/collection will showcase in Australia in December (my first Australian show).

For the first collection in the series, I want to invite viewers to be present with color. So instead of abstracted work, I've been creating literal "still life" scenes based on real, every-day love stories (self, romantic, and spiritual), and painting with a focus on color psychology.

Through this process, each artwork has gone through a transition: from a blue underlay to a vibrant and warm finish; from a tightly constructed scene to a playful and expressive piece.
... the same transition I want for the viewer.


1) To find a space that is central for my audience;
2) For this space to be empt
y and clean with lots of natural light - to really amplify color;
3) For the space to have gone through a transition itself;

4) To host the show in spring - 
opening night Friday 4, April

- There is an energy here that I love
- Feedback from my previous shows and collectors has shown a desire and
'white space' for an event like this in the area.
- On a personal level Downtown Huntsville reminds me of my former homes in both Sydney & Paris.


- 104 Jefferson - creative tenants, creative area, creative vibe, and beautiful.
- An alternative space that fits the brief
