FINE ARTS AND DESIGN / EXHIBITOR & FINALIST / ARTISTIC DIRECTOR / TEACHER AND MUSE / BUSINESS OWNER OF 'LEVA CREATIVES', ARTISTIC MERIT JUDGE,FEDERAL DISABILITY ARTS OFFICER, ARTS GRANTS ASSESSOR.
Through a lifetime's love of Physiology, Performing and Visual Arts, mixed with a well trained eye in Design Principles & Colour Theory, I have amassed talent and skills quantified by age, experience, places and people.
My background is in Fine Art & Design, Dance & Performance, Healthcare & Retail, Merchandising & Prop Artistry.
My work has evolved from a childhood love of Norman Lindsay, the friendship,mentoring and colours of Australia's own Ainsley Roberts, Surrealism, Pop Art, Impressionism, Design Culture and the wondrous,weird, romantic visions and resourcefulness of some very special people in my life. My discipline to the Arts is dedicated to the Teachers and Dance Divas of old that trained me to be a professional .......chin to the sky darling!!!!
I enjoy experimenting with mixed media ........no rules there!
I'm passionate about charismatic people.... the more the better, and Music plays a huge role in my life as it keeps an open and objective eye within my work.
As a Teacher of the Arts I seek to open the Student's eye to see, feel and interpret with the whole self........all senses present.
MY VISION AND AIM IS TO BE A PROFITABLE NATIONAL & INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED ARTIST AND BUSINESS WOMAN WHO PROMOTES CREATIVE CULTURE ON ALL LEVELS.
Dance with your imagination
See like you've never seen before
Look, Listen, Taste, Smell......Feel
Breathe in conflicts and harmonies
Create a new genius
