Hello & welcome to the Road 2 Art website!
I'm an Artist based in Coorparoo, Brisbane & founder of Road 2 Art.
My love of art began with a creative 'fire in my belly' as a child. I was totally awestruck discovering my father could draw & transfixed watching my teenage brother create a drawing of Ivanhoe. Since then, art has always been there for me, an undeniable part of who I am. Following initial fine arts studies majoring in drawing & painting, I embarked on extensive travel, overseas and in Australia. Spending time living in Northern Territory & Broome reinforced my fascination for the history & beauty of the Australian landscape, its surreal vivid colours & flowing waters.
A foundations fanatic, I strongly believe that drawing acts as an intrinsic launch pad for any creative process, thus it is inevitable that my art blurs boundaries between drawing & painting. I love exploring expressive mark making; vibrant colour; glowing light & flowing line. The immediate sensation of expressive charcoal; the silky flow of inks and luminous layers of oil are my absolute favourite mediums.
Celebrating creative community is very important to me. I value an active role within our community as well as working on projects connecting community with our urban spaces. Dedicated to a diversified portfolio I continue to explore my art through commissions, exhibitions, murals & collaborations. My valued work with children, adults & other artists in the community ensures the integrity of my artwork & Road 2 Art.
Helping others discover art is a wonderful privilege!
