Hi, my name’s Effie, I’m a passionate Artist and Designer living in Melbourne, Australia.
Creativity has given me a means to escape, fulfilling my days with fun, happiness and relaxation. It continues to pull me into a whirlpool of colour. A place with no rules!
Now as an accomplished Artist I specialise in Decorative Art, Folk Art and Fine Art. I have won many awards for my work including a major award at The Royal Melbourne Show – The Florence Monod Memorial Award 2004 – which is awarded to the best exhibit in all craft classes.
I’ve shared my love of Art over many years through numerous publications in three of Australia’s best selling Art and Craft magazines. These include patterns, designs and personal profiles.
I teach at conventions and have conducted Folk Art and Decorative Art classes in the community and at major craft shows.
You will usually find me in my very own “creative space”, a well equipped studio in my home working on a new design, a process which begins with an idea. I don’t make drafts. I just start. I’m off! Not knowing where it will take me. My initial thought evolves along the journey and the result may turn into something completely different than I first had in mind.
