“I find that a face really tells a story and evokes an emotion, it’s why I love painting them so much.”
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.
