Scarlet requested a special cake for her 6th birthday. This is the list she gave me ... a magic princess castle with towers, a drawbridge, waterfalls, mote, dragonflies, flowers, rocks & a fairy & Barbies - here is the result!!!
I am an Australian artist. I sold my first work when I lived in London just over 20 years ago. I have been exhibiting & selling since. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from RMIT in Melbourne where I majored in Painting & Film Making (animation).
I love art & all things retro & vintage. I adore Blythe & my vintage Barbie dolls.
I have 2 beautiful daughters - Scarlet Kiyoko Christine (8) & Talulah Kimiko Wendy (6).
My more serious paintings are an attempt to find harmony between nature and man's impact upon it and a search to find beauty within the often harsh realities of life.
I live on Sydney's Botany Bay. I am always saddened at the amount of rubbish I discover on our beautiful beaches. I collect this rubbish then embroider & stitch it on to my canvases. I like the idea of transforming something ugly in to something beautiful & new … my alchemy!
