The Artist

I am originally from the lower south east of South Australia but have spent the last 7 years living in Victoria by the sea with my family. There is something about the coast that calls me! My partner Jamie and I am blessed to share 3 growing children. We have 2 jack russells who adore each other, a crazy white bull terrier named Minni mouse and a couple of lazy kitties. 

My hobbies are mostly art and crafts. You will often find me in my home studio.

My artistic training consists of a half a dozen Folk Art Classes in 2000, in 2005 I completed a drawing unit in Visual Art. For several years I worked within the art department of a magazine where I gained design skills which has continued during my years working as a tattooer. Majority of my fineart and crafts has been self taught. Throughout the years I have won several awards for my fineart, these include…
