I love drawing inspiration from the natural environment, other creatives, makers, fashion and homeware brands. I mostly love working with colours & exploring the way they can influence people's feelings and emotions. I am also very inspired by the many creative women I have come across in my life. I have had 2 beautiful art teachers in particular that have continued to inspire me over the years. The first being Amanda Humphries (local) when I was in my younger years - I remember doing art classes with Amanda at the Moree Art Gallery and having such a strong feeling of wanting to do this for the rest of my life. My art teacher at Stuartholme (Brisbane), Georgina Hooper always encouraged me to trust and pursue my own individual creative style. Even after leaving school Georgina is still a huge part of my life and continues to encourage and mentor me through my art practise. My mum, Helen is another huge inspiration for me. Everyday she lives a creative life, finding beauty in everything amidst all the day to day craziness. The simple things - the way she cooks and presents foods, wraps gifts, picks and displays flowers from her garden and the way she always makes home feel like a sanctuary. I truly believe this is where I get my love for creativity and art from - I have been surrounded with it all my life.
