Art was something that I always did. Mum was an exhibiting painter and sculptor. I grew up around artists.
When I was a young girl, I frequently won prizes for my art at local shows, taking out ‘Champion of the Show’ one year! I even won a Scholarship from the Queensland Art Gallery, to undertake exclusive art classes.
So, of course, I studied art in senior school. However, it was music and singing that ended up capturing my attention. Meanwhile, I continued my artwork in the background, as a creative release, and because I enjoyed it.
A Doorway to Other Dimensions
In 2004, the painting bug had a strong hold on me. I organised an exhibition for 2005, at The Verve cafe/restaurant in Brisbane, Australia. Mum joined me and together, we painted spiritual and inspired works for “A Doorway to Other Dimensions”.
I was interviewed on local radio and the show was advertised through local city papers and websites. My work sold out and I gained a commission! The show was extended for an extra month also!
As my first major exhibition, it couldn’t have been better.
The Cupboard Exhibitions
Following this, I exhibited frequently with “The Cupboard” group of artists, at MetroArts, Brisbane, Australia.
I am currently working on a new concept & series.
