Hello and welcome! My name is Toni, I am a mixed-media artist and teacher.
Creating art is where my soul finds it’s freedom to express.
My creative process evolves more and more each day, and I am constantly surprised and awed at what sometimes emerges. I have a loose and free style and I love to feel that freedom of scribbling with my pencil, often with both hands, and to feel unconstrained by any notion of how it should be. I love to paint with my fingers and rarely use a brush.
I’m inspired by many things – mother earth and her many gifts, the longings of my own soul, and the miraculous magic of this life we all share. I love spending my spare time meandering around in old bookstores and junk shops digging for vintage treasures that tell a story, each one adds a little extra dimension and character to my own story as it unfolds onto the canvas.
Faces are my addiction. They evolve from spirit, without a plan, and as they are created each one speaks to me with a message from her soul…or is that my soul!
For many years I poured my heart into my career in Commercial and Corporate Interior Design. It inspired me immensely, but my soul had other plans for me…so here I am.
My gorgeous home high on a hill of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia is my haven, where I grow my own food, commune with nature, and create what my heart delights in. My studio is a delightful clutter of everything I love, and surrounded by various wildlife, kangaroos and natural vegetation.
