Member of the Nanny Bay Art Colony

Loves, loves to honour treasured paintings from our recent past by giving them a little joyful zhoosh. Whilst tending to these little nods of joy she loves to crank out some of her own 100% smiling happy pieces of originality.
Honoured treasures are gifted or foraged by co-conspirators from op shops and roadsides and dumpsters. They are transformed from a discarded or unloved sadness that is no longer perhaps fashionable or hip, into a happy, smiley piece.
“No paintings are harmed during the making of the art.” spokesperson from Nanny Bay Humane Association.
