I take great pride in capturing your beloved animal alive on paper from the very first pencil sketch.

About

Painting the Animals Who Leave Their Prints All Over Your HEART

"In the dark hours of the night is when this Night Owl (with the help of her ever so mercurial Muse) is most active burning the candles low and transforming colourful works from once blank paper"

I have a great love for all animals great and small; I lives on a Sheep Station in a very rural and remote part of South Australia where rain is a very precious and rare thing. I help care for a menagerie that includes 4 ponies and 5 rescued horses, 4 guinea pigs, 7 cats, 4 dogs, several pet sheep who refuse to leave home and various other creatures furry and fluffy companions that help to inspire and uplift me in life.

I have a great passion for everything Equine (including: behaviour and psychology, nutrition, anatomy and of course her favorite subject, the Equine Hoof - which I find both inside and out (plus how it can adapt to different environments, and how to rehab hooves) truly fascinating: the technical diagrams that adorn my walls disturb most normal people ;)

My favourite things to do in my spare time is curling up with my cat and art adviser, Odysseus, in a comfy spot with with a great book (a fantasy preferably) sipping at a cup of chai tea. I Also has a fascination for learning about history and ancient myth and legends, and hopes to one day complete a short story inspired by the gods of old that has been lurking in my brain for far too long.
My love of stargazing is shown frequently in my artwork.

My desire is that my art helps to reconnect animal lovers with their amazing four-legged friends and to enable others to see and feel through my art and story that we need to listen to our hearts and our animals rather than to what is traditional or conventional. That we need to find balance within ourselves and others, that we are not separate from each other or the amazing creatures or in fact the beautiful Earth on which we rest our feet/hooves/paws. That animals do have amazing souls and are able to feel and experience as many emotions as we can. And that in their silence there is so much truth, truth that desperately needs to be heard.
