Art is a powerful tool for self discovery, expression and exploration. I want to teach people how to draw, paint and create in any way they wish, to help them find their voice and trust in their inner self. I also want to teach people art as another way of communicating and to have the skills to create what you imagine. One of the most rewarding things for me as an Art Instructor is to see how people blossom with confidence in themselves when they finally figure out how to do something or they behold their finished art work. Art is also a really excellent way of connecting people, sharing our stories and leaving a legacy.
As an Art Instructor, not only will I teach you the fundamentals of drawing in any medium (pencil, ink, pastel, charcoal) and painting in watercolours and acrylic, but I will teach you any style – be it realism, surrealism, comic book or pop art. I run workshops and teach private art classes too. I can sculpt with clay and I can write creatively. I understand the fundamentals of writing a story – particularly your own. My graphic design skills will enable me to help with the digital side of marketing yourself and even producing some of what you have created in print and on merchandise. If you want to create it, I can show you how, modify it or help you through it so that you can achieve your creative idea and bring your vision into reality.

Sense of Humour
I am currently working on a large creative project. I have written the first novel of a fantasy trilogy and I’m editing this. I am also working on a children’s book illustration portfolio. I’m part of an art group who promotes Indigenous art and I am studying Graphic Design.
Aside from my creative pursuits I spend time with my three children and my husband. I like going to cafes and the beach/nature for walks and relaxation.
