My home studio resides at Kanooka Country Creations (formally at i4art Gallery). A rural homestead in the Nambucca Valley of NSW, that I share with my Husband Tim and 2 daughters who are all creative Artisans. Kanooka Country Creations is bountiful of inspiration. A great place to explore, find solace and get those creative juices flowing. A place that is not only full of nature, patterns, colours and wildlife but such beautiful scenery. It's a true haven for us all. You will find many of my artworks inspired by my surrounds and lifestyle.
My History as an artist.
I can remember creating art from a very young age where a natural artistic talent was evident. Winning multiple awards for my art throughout my school years, it led to receiving a scholarship to study Commercial Art and Graphic Design. Soon after completing my studies in Brisbane in 1996,my skills and passion to paint became a full time career. Having many people being excited and engaged with my works, I found my art to be sold out and collected by many throughout Australia and Internationally.
My paintings reflect a wide range of styles, which include; bold, highly textured Tree Studies and Landscapes; the super-real, larger than life Flower Studies; multi layered Abstracts; gloss resin Seascape Art; animals and women. I enjoy combing the use of traditional techniques with modern subjects and mediums. With my unique use of texture and colour I create dynamic and visually engaging artworks.
These quality artworks are available World Wide direct from my studio based in the Nambucca Valley Australia.
GALLERY AND SERVICES
Since 1997 I have worked alongside my husband Tim. Tim works behind the scenes making canvasses, dealing with freight and packaging, and ensuring that the service provided is of a high standard. The entire process involved in the creation of my artworks is done completely in-house. From the framing and stretching of the canvasses, to the finished product, ready to hang on your wall. Only the best of materials are used to ensure your investment will last a life time, and will continue to look as good as the day you bought it.

VIRTUAL IN-SITU CONSULTATION - In today's world of modern technology we are having great success with what we call virtual in-situ. Clients often contact us with interest in certain paintings, but are often not sure on how they will look in the space they have in mind. We get the client to send images of the room, wall space, furnishings etc. With my knowledge in graphic design I then super imposes the painting on the proposed wall. Any adjustments in size, design or colour are also made at this stage, and a virtual in-situ is achieved. This is often the decisive factor for the client. It is the instant feedback, instant assurance that the piece will look fabulous in their home.
COMMISSIONED ART WORK - I just love creating fresh and original pieces. If a specific design, style or size painting is required, a full consultation service is available.
