About:

I'm a fine artist, textile and fashion designer who brings an indulgent, bohemian romantic spirit to my creative endeavours. My illustratory style merges contemporary fine art, social and cultural commentary, and a childlike eye, to create designs that capture the attention and imagination through conceptual elements, storytelling and humour. With an original and authentic process, I find inspiration from a variety of sources, across all creative fields and subcultures, and with purity of spirit, express my ideas through line-work, digital design, mixed media, collage and screen printing. I have a clear vision that targets both the inner child and the social conscience within the context of the luxury marketplace. I grew up between Europe, South East and Central Asia, Australasia, and across the USA, and have a refined cultural sensitivity and societal awareness that enriches my creative work. I've dedicated myself to the pursuit of art of living all my life and this quest has been central to my inspiration as designer, artist and academic.

Maya Angelou’s 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings' erupted in my mind. I saw why the caged bird sang, and this is what I saw. A housewife of the 50’s lives on television, wine, and pills to blind herself to the bars that hold her. Brought up to be a daughter, wife, and mother, nothing more, nothing less, she had always been so, but it was taking its toll on her soul. She listened to the radio and it told her she could die tomorrow. Communism and bombs, politics and songs that rise up in the dark and take hold. The sound flowed from the television, the newspaper, and through the radio. The sound came in as millions of people; the sound of the 60’s was rising, and in spite of the bars which were holding her, the flight of the 60’s bathed her with light. The 60s were coming and opportunity was booming, fantasies were erupting, and freedom was conquering; unity, justice, feminism, and power to the people. Re-birthed from the ashes, her life just begun, she follows the sound of the 60’s into the sun.
