Born in Belgium and raised in Australia from 1972, feeling privileged to experience the freedom and open space Australia has to offer.
Now living on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, much of my inspiration comes from the beauty in nature, and of course, my children are always giving me inspiration and ideas to continue my artistic journey.
It all started with an affirmation that struck my heartstrings, an affirmation from ‘Wishes Fulfilled’ by the late Dr Wayne Dyer. I was brought to my knees, so powerful and profound!
Inspired to paint the affirmation onto canvas so I would remember.
I call this painting ‘Heart Flame Activation’.
‘Pegasus Vortex’, a vision received during a Mother Earth healing meditation in 2015.
When inspired to create Pegasus Vortex, I solely had to trust intuition. Apart from creating a paint by numbers at the age of about 13, I really did not have art lessons.
Art did not interest me at school, and if I recall, I moved out of the Art classes and into woodwork, which I loved.
I have always had a creative streak and having parents that are both creative has helped!
My focus is tranquility, it is something the world needs right now!
I am a nature's child; very rarely do I enjoy being closed in by walls. I spend most of my time outdoors and have always been fascinated by the wonders of our natural world.
2021 is a year of Art lessons that will help me enhance my work!
I began acrylic pouring a few years ago. My preferred method with acrylic pouring is to embellish these pieces.
It was a sunny morning in September 2015!
I lay down on the lawn and did a mother earth healing meditation.
That was the day I received a vision of Pegasus Vortex; it was a bright sharp vision that took my breath away!
The Meditation was a beautiful experience!
The message received
Let Go Of Negative Emotions!
Believe in Yourself!
Trust Your Inner Vision!
As I sat in my chair, under the patio, mesmerized by my experience, my chair rocked underneath me and the sliding door rattled as
I heard a ‘Whisper in the Wind’ - ‘Thank you, we hear you’
Shortly after I headed straight to town, bought a canvas and the journey began.
Truth is, I had no idea what I was doing or how I would create a painting from a vision, however, I was determined to give it a go.
The journey was one of trusting my intuition. I play inspirational music and meditations while I paint, so I feel I work with this energy as well.
Pegasus is free in spirit, leaving the earthly turmoil behind. Pure in spirit, Journeying the realms cleansing away impurities.
Now glossed and framed (a gift from my eldest son), hangs in my art room, reminding me that when things get tough,don’t give up.Signed and dated 7th March 2017.
I was listening to a podcast about our mystical power animals.
When I heard that we all have a dragon, I immediately began the journey of connecting with my Fire Dragon.
Her name is ‘ILLUMINUS’
She is Strength and Courage!
She is Confidence!
The Affirmations that resonate with this painting are:-
“I am Strength and Self-Confidence”
“I am Crystal Clear Will”
‘I call upon Illuminus to clear the path ahead of all lower energies and entities and to be guided by Archangel Gabriel’.
And So It Is
At the time of creating ‘On the Edge’ I was feeling a little isolated in the ‘Artistic Cyber World!
Hence the cabin standing on its own solid foundation.
The colors yellow, red and orange symbolize the Solar Plexus, Sacral and Base Chakras.
To be honest sometimes it feels like I am sucked into the unknown and daunting Cyber World of no return.
Some see this piece as a symbolization of global warming, there is no right nor wrong – it just is, what it is.
A fun project for my youngest son, Jerram.
This piece was inspired by the love and companionship
our four-legged friends give to us. Ready to conquer the ocean and protect his master
from predators that dwell beneath.
‘Gone Fishing’ was created for my eldest son, Harley.
While painting, it was as if I was telling a story to his children, my future grandchildren.
I wanted to capture a little of everything that my son likes to do, including his new-found hobby, snowboarding, hence why there are snowy mountains in the background.
The palm tree signifies his holiday time at home in sub-tropical Queensland and the rest is as it is.

The Frangipanis’ are an extra and are a symbol of beauty, strength, determination, peace and tranquility.
These stunning flowers work with the heart and solar plexus chakras, bringing positive to one’s life, resembling my daughters’ purity and determination throughout life.

The fires are burning as the ships enter the shore.
All are welcomed by clan members as they prepare to feast and celebrate the forthcoming winter solstice.
The first ship represents the Vikings sea guardian, The Dragon, protector of its people. Resembling strength and determination.
The second boat, with its shields of copper and gold and its throwing axes on the sail represent honor and unity.
A big thank you to my son Jesse, my sunshine, for inspiring me to paint Heart of the Viking!

“She holds her vision in Divine Love and Reverence for all!”
“Finding stillness inside of oneself, amidst the chaos, is the answer to creating your outer World!”
The Wisteria blossom, almost heart shaped archway, opens to a Pond, where two white swans paddle.
In the distance, atop a pristine waterfall, a Unicorn rears, she is Crystal Clear Vision, a Goddess herself.
Water flows gently down the rocky stream and trickles into the pond.
A cluster of bloom – purples, red, orange, yellow, white, deep
violet, pink, green and two shade trees surround the pond.
Tranquility, Strength, Unity, Vision
“In honoring the Divine Feminine
we honor Mother Earth and all that dwell upon her!”

2020 has been a big year for growth, in every aspect of life.
