my story

 The Little Yellow House was named after my own little yellow house a place I call home and

where I create art in all its forms. in an exciting new development in May 2021 I opened The Little Yellow House Gallery & Studio at 41 Tompson Street Wagga Wagga!

I am a Riverina artist living in Wagga Wagga with my three studio dogs Charlie, Bella and Henry. I am a full time police officer aiming to be a full time artist! I have loved painting and drawing since I was a little girl and one of my best memories is of my mother taking me to the Monet exhibition at the Gallery of NSW. The beauty of Monets dreamy, light filled style entranced me and I try and bring touches of this into my own style. I would describe my style as eclectic as I am drawn to a number of subjects ad find as my artist journey continues these interests get wider.

 

I am drawn to the depth of emotion in the human face, in particular peoples eyes, the windows to the soul! I am also very drawn to the beauty in nature especially the Australian landscape or seascape. I love flowers and nature and express this through a love of colour and texture which I believe brings out the variety of the natural world. I tend to work on a larger scale and love to create huge statement pieces that lighten any room. I think that its so important to surround yourself with colour and art and beautiful things and try to create pieces that will do just this - bring beauty to a home or office!

 

Art is both my therapy and my release, like Monet said, "I would like to paint the way a bird sings" soaring with freedom.

I am an Archibald entrant and have shown my work in a number of art shows around Australia. My art is currently in collections both here and internationally and I am a featured artist with Bluethumb and Art Lovers Australia. I love taking on commissions and see them as a collaboration between myself and the collector.
