    CULTURE MAGAZINE INTERVIEW

    Last week, I sat down with Claire from Culture Magazine to talk about art and life..

    "My art is becoming increasingly raw and there is so much excitement and joy in that for me personally. I feel like it is a little tick of authenticity to have spent 20 years painting and not in the least bit lost my passion or enthusiasm for colour, music and movement in the process. It is just a wonderfully cathartic and beautifully energised experience for me and I am very grateful to wake each morning and cycle with my dog Chloé to my studio in Melbourne, where I feel most free and at peace, and genuinely excited for life - if I could share just a small part of that feeling through my art with others, I would be very happy."
