individual style and I enjoy supporting and guiding each student to reach their creative
My passion for drawing and painting has inspired me to experiment and try out a variety of
mediums such as graphite, pastel, oil, watercolour, and charcoal. My favourite medium is
pastel, loving the immediacy and its soft luscious, stroke, texture, and vibrant colours. The
subjects I love to paint are figures, portraits, landscape/seascapes, flowers and animals.
Being an artist gives me joy every day.
