"I live in Melbourne's inner eastern suburbs with my husband and two sons. With a passion for interiors and coastal style, I have always been a creative at heart and have won various awards for my creative pursuits and in my respective fields. I am primarily a self-taught artist and have studied natural light photography intensely.
Since my childhood years I have spent my summers on the Mornington Peninsula which has created my love of the coast. I am immersed in superb, ever changing sunsets, sunrises, skies, landscape and sea which is where I draw my inspiration. I have also developed a love of the beautiful turquoise waters, inlets, ports and villages in Greece; courtesy of family travels.
I work with oils, acrylic, ink and mixed media; depending on the nature of the artwork.
You may be wondering why the name Squiz & co. Well, I used to nickname my eldest son 'Squirrel' when he was a toddler. Over time it became versions of Squirrel such as 'Squiz' and 'Little Squiz'. When brainstorming a gorgeous name for this venture with my beautiful friend Caz, Squiz & Co just fitted so perfectly because squiz means 'to look at' and that's what we do to art on our walls; plus it has special meaning to me. The 'and co' part is the other talented artists that will be popping up on Squiz & Co, beginning with my gorgeous friend & talented artist, Caz and growing from here."
