Art is cheap, but nature is priceless
I have always been a visual creature, drawn to beautiful colour palettes and the awe-inspiring compositions created by mother nature and by artisans alike.  

For the longest time, my creative expression lay dormant amidst a career that demanded a left brain perspective and a young family that absorbed every other waking moment.  Then, in 2012, my husband Guy bought me a camera for Christmas.  “I love seeing the world through your eyes” he said and immediately everything changed.   I now had a tool to capture and construct a world view that I hadn’t realised existed. 
It ignited a wellspring of self-expression, and a love affair with nature.  

Ten years down the track, my work remains enamoured with colour and composition.  I’m drawn to the untamed and unrelenting beauty served up by nature every day for everyone who chooses to pause long enough to connect with it.  My work has been described as "a celebration of the often overlooked" but I like to think of it like a trail of breadcrumbs; leading us back to treasure which we have long since forgotten to see, to acknowledge, or to pay tribute to. Each piece of my work is a microcosm of nature’s wonder; a vignette of the majesty that exists under our very noses ... just waiting for us to claim it.  

Finally, my art is also a subtle statement in activism.  By composing and presenting each ‘unremarkable’ serving of nature, I hope to elevate the reverence and respect that our beautiful world deserves.
