I'm an artist and graphic designer who lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. I live near Noosa, which is one of the most beautiful places I know of. I have lived in many different countries, including England, France, Belgium, Bahrain and Zaire. I can speak French, although I'm a bit rusty these days!

I have an honours degree in Psychology, and also Level A and B in Occupational Testing (Hogan Personality Inventory).

I am deeply passionate about art, painting, design, typography and pattern. I am continually learning, improving, experimenting and developing. I have endless curiosity about so many things in our life, and am exploring ways in which to express these through art.

I love science (two of my three A-Levels were in Biology and Physics) and still love learning more about psychology, career choices and perception. I am fascinated with how people end up doing the jobs they do, what influences perspective, and how to improve the environment we interact with.

I am a mum of a boy (8) and a girl (6) who keep me very busy all the time. I am married to a motoring writer and photographer, Iain. You can follow him on instagram at @iainfoto
