Mother’s Paintings

Happy Mothers Day everyone! How will you be celebrating?

My mother is an absolute inspiration. Growing up, I always said “I want to be an artist one day just like my mummy”! These days I’m not an “artist”, although I am a Graphic Designer and have immersed myself in the artworld collecting beautiful paintings and working as a gallery assistant at one of Melbourne’s leading contemporary art galleries.

Today, I thought I’d share with you a selection of my mother’s paintings starting from her early 1990’s work, to her latest series.
