The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls" ( Pablo Picasso)

Art has been a lifetime journey for me. Over the years my paintings found home in many private collections in New Zealand and overseas. I am lucky to live in West Auckland where nature is splendid and powerful, people are creative and friendly, and you can't run out of inspiration.
I see the world in a beautiful mysterious way and believe in healing power of art. Colour has a profound effect on our emotional and physical well-being. My favourite colours are red, orange, yellow- hues of sunshine and fire, warm, passionate and expressive. Pink and green are amazing, happy colours too.
I am passionate about designing art products such as prints, tiles, wallets, colouring pages etc. There are so many ways to enjoy art!
