Original Art Gallery
Creating Works of HeART

Welcome to the gallery proudly showcasing my original hand drawn art from 2015-Present; featuring a variety of mediums, dedicated to my beloved muse, the horse and some wildlife too! 

 

Art is my passion, therapy and self-expression in this world full of chaos, beauty, wonder and the unknown. I am self-taught, and believe because of this, I have been able to explore and create my own unique style; experiment, learn, fail, try again and grow as an artist without interference, judgement or bias. I compete only with myself, and thrive on the art journey/process. It's all so exciting, challenging and creative! 

Artworks that are AVAILABLE will say so, but please also visit the Available Art and Archives pages to view more artworks for sale. Alternatively, you may choose to buy my art via ART LOVERS AUSTRALIA, an online gallery. Please click HERE to be taken to my page.

FANTASY

FANTASY

Inspiration comes from everywhere! I watched Free Guy and the Mariah Carey song, Fantasy was played throughout the movie, although I prefer Jodie Comer's chilled out version!

SIMPLICITY

SIMPLICITY

This little piece featuring an Andalusian stallion performing the Spanish walk gave me a big lesson in what it is to be an artist: less is more, beauty is in simplicity and always listen to what the artwork is telling me! Reference photo by C. Slawik (www.slawik.com) and used with permission. SOLD

POLARIS

POLARIS is a deeply personal piece.
