I was experimenting with wood and all the things you can do with it. I started off just printing a photo I had taken on to it of a beautiful beach in Thailand that my husband and I had visited. I then drew a peaceful looking woman onto it as I was reminded of how peaceful and relaxed we had been on that beach and then decorated her with painted leaf prints and an Indian style head dress.
I studied art and design as well as fashion and textiles, and also worked as a hairdresser dabbling in couture hair for fashion shows. I draw inspiration from travel and popular culture. I've just recently dived into trying to be a full time artist. It's a hard road but I love creating beautiful things and it's really rewarding when people appreciate my work.
