I was born in North Africa and in 1970 migrated to Australia with my parents. Prior to this move we lived in Malta where I studied English. These three countries have collided to represent my talent on canvas.
Art for me is a way of life. I haven’t gone a single day without thinking about my art, what to paint next and whom to approach etc. I started very young and would spend hours drawing and painting. I wasn’t your average outdoor girl…but I loved it. My father was very encouraging and would buy me art material instead of toys as he knew it would make me happier.
In the year 1992, I decided to take up folk art lessons and spent hours practicing brush strokes. I tried experimenting with colour mixing, broad brush strokes, thickened textures and other forms to create my mixed media work and my unique style.I love to use acrylics but also use oils, pastels and mixed media.
I have exhibited extensively in solo, group exhibitions. Sold my art at galleries and received awards.
Recognizing that one never stops learning, I continue to participate in workshops to broaden my knowledge and to mix with likeminded artists.
I hope that along with me you will enjoy what I have created and that you will be inspired by the art that I produce.
