Hello

I'm-Asphyxia-and-this-is-what-I-do

 IMG_8265 I paint quirky, sweet characters who’ll touch you and inspire you. I like to represent those of us who are different, to remind us that inclusion is for everyone. My work is available online in my shop.
 IMG_8265 I am the author of The Grimstones – an award winning junior fiction book series featuring my family of handmade gothic puppets.
 IMG_8265 I’m teaching a free online course in Auslan – Australian Sign Language. Learn basic signs in bite-sized lessons of around ten signs each.

My art journal is my best friend, my life coach and a visual extravaganza. I’ve developed a method of lazy journaling that still results in a stunning book. Learn online here.

The book I’m currently working on, Future Girl, will be the art journal of the main character, who is Deaf. To be notified when it’s released, please subscribe to my mailing list.

I’ve written many articles about living a sustainable life, living creatively, and more. You’ll find them all via my guide to my blog.

What's New

My work is now on exhibition at the Women’s Welcome Centre at the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne until January 2018! We’ve installed over 40 pieces including original artworks, prints, assemblage boxes, cards and books, and I’ll be adding more as I go. The Welcome Centre is a gorgeous library and lounge space where women and their families relax, read, borrow library books, breastfeed and take time out in the busy clinical world of hospitals.

All my works are for sale, so feel free to go and have a look, enjoy, and one of the lovely staff at the Welcome Centre can help you buy a piece if you want to. I’m donating 10% of all proceeds to the Women’s so not only do you get a wonderful piece of art, you’re supporting a really good cause.

In December we are planning ‘a conversation with the artist’ (yes, that’s me!).  I’ll be talking about various pieces on display and there’ll be a Q&A session. I’ll also run a session for hearing people about communicating with people who are Deaf, to share some of my experiences and ideas with visitors and staff at the Women’s. More details to come.

Royal Women’s Hospital – The Welcome Centre
Open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm
Corner Grattan Street and Flemington Rd, Parkville, Melbourne, Australia

Enter the hospital through the main foyer, and head to your left and you’ll find the Centre.
