I am a seeker, a dreamer and a champion of truth and beauty. I am feverishly desirous to tell stories in a diverse number of ways, to weave together a diverse tapestry of beauty.
I set out long ago on the pilgrimage to tell stories through a vast array of mediums. Stories of grief, stories of defiant hope, stories of overwhelming beauty, stories of the grit of everyday, stories of faith, stories of loss, stories of you and me and the world around us.
I find myself continually enraptured by the diversity of all creation; people and nature alike.
I believe that we were created in the image of a highly imaginative Creator God and therefore, it is innate within us to create. It is the blood of my very being.
"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. The mind that responds to the intellectual and spiritual values that lie hidden in a poem, a painting, or a piece of music, discovers a spiritual vitality that lifts itself about itself, takes it out of itself, and makes it present to itself on a level of being that did not know it could ever achieve." - Thomas Merton, 'No Man Is An Island'
I currently reside on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland where I am studying art therapy, teaching children art (or rather, they teach me), writing poetry and practising to become a fine artist.
"I am going to make everything around me beautiful, that will be my life"
