Perhaps my Australian roots are to blame for my intense love for the land, nature and vibrant colour. This is where I derive much of my inspiration. I always carry a sketchbook with me because I love drawing!
After studying fashion and textile design, I co-founded a fashion label in Perth, Australia that was stocked in boutiques nationally and abroad. But I soon found myself dreaming of a life elsewhere. This led me, at a young age, to Paris.
Accepting a design position at a Paris fashion house, I spent much of my free time drawing and painting. It was at this point that my passion for illustration grew and my love for art and fashion began to change. I decided it was time to move away from the fashion industry and focus more of my energy on my artwork. I was soon exhibiting with a Paris based gallery and working alongside interior designers, for clients in Switzerland, Russia and France. It was exciting when my artwork started becoming featured in exhibitions in Berlin, Paris, London, Sydney, Perth and New York.
Over a decade later, I now live in Berlin with my three girls, husband and our dog Galo. Since moving here, I have worked as an artist and curated several exhibitions. I love to travel, take road trips and experience new cultures. It stimulates my senses and inspires new artistic possibilities.
My new brand allows me to combine my passion for art and illustration, with my love of interiors, fashion and surface design. I am very excited to share it with you.
