pride series

Inspired by world pride

As an ally of the LGBTQ+ community, I love celebrating Pride with my family.

For World Pride 2023 I decided to sketch the famous Enmore rainbow house in Sydney’s inner west.

Since starting my business, I had only added a ‘touch of colour’ to doors and bushes in my sketches depending on what my customer desired. I mostly stuck to traditional black and white, after all, my clients loved them!.

I wasn’t afraid of colour, in fact all you have to do is see my wardrobe to know that I LOVE rainbows and bright colours! I just canned my love of painting when my little ones were born.. no studio door to close to keep away from little fingers and too much mess to pack away, and if I didn’t pack it away… disastrous!

So, now that paint is back in my life I intend on doing a Pride series FULL of colour. starting with the Enmore rainbow  home followed by the way I see Marrickville Road, Marrickville; Although the colourful shops don’t intend to celebrate Pride, being a part of the (mostly) inclusive inner west is something to be proud of.

One of my dreams in life is to live in a world where articles like this don’t exist.

Hope you’re having a colourful day!

q&a with the artist

As an ally of the LGBTQ+ community it simply made sense for my first coloured building sketch to be the famous Enmore rainbow home. Then I thought, why stop there? $3 of every print sold will go to Pride Foundation Australia.

6-10 is what I’m aiming for, I’m working on this series in between my regular commissions, studies, mum life and walking doggos! so, she’s a slow going project, but all good things come to those who wait!

Yes! – I am planning an exhibition for 2024. with the pride series and more! (another slow going personal project of mine)
