Born in Australia – land of the Rainbow Serpent, the Dreamtime, rainforests, billabongs and coral reefs – in the rad 80s when Ken Done doona covers, Golden Gaytimes and Kylie Minogue were hot, I grew up to be a gypsy nomad travelling wherever the tropical breeze takes me. After a year in Sri Lanka, I’m currently living in Indonesia. My ‘studio’ is a little wooden hut by the beach, surrounded by frangipane, banana trees and bird of paradise plants. Oh, and a few active volcanoes.
With a degree in Art History and Archaeology, I’m fascinated by the mythologies of ancient cultures, fairytales and legends, and often lose myself in nostalgic fantasies of the more recent past – the 60s, 70s and 80s.
I’m also a bit of a mystic (AKA I believe in magic) and have learnt how to tap into what I can only describe as a ‘sixth sense’ or higher ‘creative source’ through meditation, yoga, divination and other esoteric practices. Call me a witch if you will – but it helps me paint some incredible ‘spirit portraits’ and shows me the way when I need inspiration.
I’m named after Nancy Drew and Alice in Wonderland – so it makes sense that I’m obsessed with children’s books and fantasy worlds. I guess I just have a wild imagination. And I’m perfectly happy to live in it whenever possible.

An intuitive portrait session is a pretty special experience for both me and my subject. It begins with a distance energy reading where I will delve into your aura, connect with your spirit guides, and discover messages and symbols to help guide you on the path to joy and abundance. There's a bit of mystical, metaphysical stuff that happens on my end, but essentially its like a relaxing 20-30 minute meditation for you and a bit of a trip for me (since I'll be meeting with your spirit in the astral plane!).
Afterward, I will take notes and send you a recording of our session. Next, I will sketch out and paint an illustration of what I 'see' in the meditation. I will then send you a beautiful giclée print on fine art paper that you can keep as a reminder of your session.
"Wow! I just listened to your recording and I'm a little bit blown away. It resonated very deeply. I had shivers at a few points, and by the end, I had tears in my eyes. It feels really comforting that another human being can understand a bit of my soul. I have never felt so seen by another person!" – CHLOE
"Oh my gosh! That is the coolest! You are so spot on in many areas that its freaky! You really do have such a gift. You are so tapped in it's unreal. I cannot get over the portrait, babe, it's such a special piece and I will love it forever." – ALIZA
