Crayons have long been a source of amusement for me. Since I was a little girl I have had a love affair with crayons. The day I received a box of 64 colours I was in heaven. I spent hours perfecting my ability to colour within the lines. As an adult I try t throw off the bonds and confines of staying in the lines. I don't want to be trapped within the lines. I want to create in freedom. The oughts and shoulds I want banished as I have enough of those in real life.

As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
