It was a treat to be a part of this amazing event at Lennox Head Community Centre. A day to celebrate the beauty of girls, there were discussion forums on the use of social media, singing and expression workshops, makeup and hair and face painting tents, a healing tent for parents and girls, perfumed body creams to make, yummy food from the Belle General, and the beading table, shown above. Beading is not just for girls! The girls and boys had so much fun designing and stringing their beads to make bracelets and necklaces.

Hello! I live on the Gold Coast, having moved here from the Northern Rivers in 2021.
I have a wealth of experience as an artist, art educator and mentor, having worked at secondary and tertiary levels, and at the NGV and RMIT, Melbourne. I have supported adults to prepare folios for tertiary entry, and conducted art workshops from my studio. I have led field trips to the outback, and more recently conducted a course for a national health and wellbeing program.
Currently I am working with a number of clients individually, both in person and/or on-line.
Painting and drawing were natural ways to express as a child. I loved playing with watercolours, coloured pencils and paint. Making art has been a constant practice in my life, and the best way I know to respond to the beauty of nature. I have enjoyed teaching art for many years, and I would love to share the joy and playfulness of your natural expression with you.
