About Me

I am passionate about helping people connect with their hearts and true self through painting and drawing.

When you paint from the heart, it ripples out into all areas of your life, allowing expansion and growth to come, fears to drop, and the joy of truly being yourself to flourish. I know how much fear there is when it comes to expressing who we really are or just not feeling good enough to even start. So that’s where I help. As an ex nurse, I am a natural nurturer and helping people blossom makes my soul sing.

I teach a mixture of letting go and art technique in my workshops and retreats; that perfect blend that I am always working on myself.

I love to help you how to get past the frustration of not being able to express yourself. How to find and mix the colour you want in paint or how to get a pastel to sing a sunrise.

I also love meditating and running guided meditations. It comes very naturally to me to help people journey inwardly to places where their wisdom and heart can speak clearly to them. I often weave this into my classes.

I have always drawn and painted since I was little but started using painting as a way of expressing my dreams and visions in meditations when I was in my early 20s during art school, some 30 years ago. My paintings come from the deepest place in my heart and often, I am guided to paint an inner experience because it is about a deep healing that so many of us crave.

More than anything, it is truth, which is love, that I strive to express and in doing that, I journey the same journey we all have into the depths of knowing ourselves. This is so collective I hope that my paintings speak to you.

I have a rich life living in Fremantle in Western Australia. I grew up in an Anglo Indian family in Kent, England. I feel very blessed to be teaching and doing what I love.
