What medium do you work with, and why have you chosen them?
Mixed medium - acrylic paint, oil pastels, inks, water colours.
How does your artwork get from initial concept to exhibition stage?
I work intuitively and it just happens.
Can you tell us a little more about your creative working environment/studio?
I am big on the energy of the space - my beautiful studio is located in Sandringham, show room at the front and painting studio in the back. I put the music on, my phone away and have fun! That's my biggest thing - when you're having fun, you produce your best work.
