Inspiring a stronger you

I am passionate about the earth and about helping people step into their ultimate fierce and empathetic selves. My mission is to create art, creative workshops and community art events that bring strength and meaning into your life, as well as connect you to your community.

I have been printmaking and making art for over 15 years and I regularly run linoprinting and creative workshops, as well as community art events in the inner west.

I created and produced the first inaugural Show Your Westside Art Prize and Exhibition in Footscray, in 2023. This event had over 210 artists involved, with over 400 people attending the opening night. I also recently finished two large murals at Footscray Primary school, to compliment their new build.

All my products are eco-friendly and symbolize resilience and strength. My art is printed on eco-friendly paper, my earrings are on sustainably sourced hoop pine and my T-shirts are made from 100% recycled materials.
