Artist Statement

Hi I’m Toni, I am a mixed-media artist. I have been painting since I was young and recently began working with mixed media, and I love it!  I work mainly with vintage imagery, paints, papers, stamps, old sheet music and the like.   I love spending my spare time digging around in old bookstores and junk shops looking for little treasures to add to my work.   I so love this way of creating beautiful inspirational art and the freedom and hap-hazard nature of how each piece evolves. Each piece is created to convey, in a whimsical and heartfelt way,  lovely inspirational messages that uplift the spirit.  My girl’s faces have evolved over time, and as they are created each one speaks to me with a message from her soul.

I have a University degree in Interior Design and a passion for unique and lovely things, more often than not they will be old, shabby and have their own story to tell.  I have always been creative and am constantly making, building and growing things.  My gorgeous old timber home in the Glass House Mountains of 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 forest.
