I am a Self Teaching Artist of Australian origin. My work is influenced by the many stages of being a women and especially the visual feelings of moving through menopause naturally.Through the dark beyond and through, amongst the drowning sea of emotion, the seemingly madness in my head, and my physical body arggg, I paint. I have found that the question of what i believe has exploded and slowly erased giving me moments of peace to see what i know.
