"Someone, I tell you, in another time will remember us" ~ Sappho

​I am a watercolour portrait artist living in New Zealand. ​I have been drawing and painting my whole life and love to capture people's personality and uniqueness in art form.

I studied at Hungry Creek Art School in Puhoi and went on to work in the fashion industry for several years. I am currently living in rural Waikato with my two children and cats, living my dream of being an artist.

​I use pen and watercolours for painting portraits because together they have a charming, storybook quality. I really like the delicate colours and the way the paint flows in unexpected ways. I love to create unique works of art that can be kept as mementoes for years to come.
