I am dedicated to and understand first-hand, the magic that the arts can offer. I have been developing my relationship with them since I was eight years old. Fifteen years ago I moved from the South of England to Melbourne where I continued my studies in art, education, art therapy and now psychology.
I have been a fully qualified therapist for over ten years now and love every minute of my work. I have experience in working with people of all different ages with a variety of needs and expectations. One of the main aspects of this work that is so compelling is the process of developing unique therapeutic relationships that complement each individual and their creative journey.
As an artist, my main skill lies in drawing. I spend most of my time in the studio exploring different ways of drawing. I like to push the boundaries of what a drawing is and what a drawing looks like. Some of my favourite topics include discovering and magnifying details found in nature, surrealist ideas and developing characters for children’s picture books. I also really enjoy time with my dog and being in nature. Watching her play and teaching her new commands brings me great joy. In addition, I also love boxing and am a volunteer coach at a local not for profit gym. Working alongside people of all ages and watching the growth in their discipline, respect and dedication to boxing, the gym, others and most importantly themselves is a magic process.
