Who am I? Dutch Australian, I was born and raised on the Darling Downs, Queensland. I’ve  been drawing and painting animals particularly horses for as long as I can remember. Some  of my first memories are drawing ponies as a young girl. During high school, Visual Art was  

always my favourite class, and I was lucky enough to have some great teachers that really  encouraged and guided me. 

When I first left school, I studied visual art at Tafe, but for various reasons I deferred to  Bachelor of Business. Due to time constraints with our business and competing in  equestrian events, my art had taken a bit of a back seat until a few years ago after I  sustained a hip injury, which meant I needed to give up riding for 18 months. I started  painting and drawing again and it’s the best thing I could have done!! 

I’ve rediscovered my love of painting and I’m enjoying it more than ever. I love the feeling  of being immersed in the moment when painting. I love seeing a piece emerge as I progress  through my process. I also have a love of sculpture and hoping to have some small  equestrian pieces available soon. 

I find inspiration in rural and equestrian life. I’m lucky to live in a rural area with great  views and big skies. I love taking my own reference photos for my paintings and I’m also  enjoying some landscape and portrait photography. Our property attracts a varied  abundance of birds – I love how the resident birds come and remind me to put out feed for  them. As well as our own horses and poultry – we have obliging neighbours that let me  photograph their sheep, goats and cattle. I love seeing what I can create from these photos  with my brushes.
