White Native Flowers

The native flowers in my neighbourhood have taken hold in my studio with their burst of colour, interesting textures and fun leaves.  The inspiration started with the bottle brush and has moved on the gum flowers, callistamon and grevillias.

Exploring these flowers and leaves in my art has led to me exploring my materials further and adding threads into my artwork to create interesting and unique textures.

The colour tones have also evolved and changed to explore a more muted palate.  It appeals to my Melbourne heritage and cries out for a decor that embraces natural wooden tones and mid-century modern vibe.

Australian Artist, painting with Gouache and Oil Pastel on Paper. Lover of lines, curves, colour and texture.

Born and bred in Melbourne, Australia, I've spent most of my adult life travelling, time living in Sweden and Adelaide and have settled in Brisbane with my little family.

I'm creative by nature and find inspiration in many different corners of this world, some just under my nose, others a life time away. I blog because I love to share what I discover, and to inspire myself.
