About

12250137

I am an artist based in Brisbane, I recently relocated from Darwin. Last year studied at Charles Darwin University, and held my first solo exhibition. This year I will continue exploring different mediums, tools and art history.
Watercolour is my preferred medium, and portraiture is my main focus, but I like to learn different techniques in different disciplines. I also enjoy becoming involved in the art community around me, and am excited about discovering Brisbane’s treasures.
