Welcome, so glad to see you here! 

Yes, I am a professional artist with a passion for sharing my knowledge in a seriously fun and fabulously informative way.
I work from my home studio in leafy Melbourne.

Art is essential to my life, since I felt my calling to be an artist at aged four! 


For over a decade I have been teaching art in the community and at university. I have a unique approach to art and art teaching, I believe everyone can learn to draw! 

One of my major projects is about the history and environment of the Yarra River in Melbourne – you can have a look at more about my artwork over here. 

Students say that I create a really safe and encouraging space, that the class culture is wonderful and it is not long before they feel comfortable sharing and exploring art together. an encouraging and friendly approach. I teach in a fun, challenging and experimental way, while imparting a strong knowledge of traditional techniques and skills as well.If you would like to know how they feel from their words directly go here
