Making Art, Better Together.
Magpie Cove was established in 2017. Created with the intention of building a community art space. Building a supportive and creative environment for artists and non-artists alike. A place where ideas and creativity are encouraged.
The Cove strives to cultivate compassion, with a strong emphasis on self-compassion, respect, and freedom of expression; growing a magical realm for all involved.
I have been a full-time photographer and artist for 13 years. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
Growing up with dyslexia and ADHD, I have always been a visual thinker with an innate strength for communicating with images… not so much with words. Sincerely understanding just how important it is for an individual to have a voice, to be able to clearly communicate. has led me to discover all kinds of different visual and physical ways to tell stories. My passions and fearless curiosity have led me on many adventures; dedicating my life to documenting and sharing stories. Creating art with the intention of connecting people to each other, our place in time, and, our environment. Having the honour to build a space, Magpie Cove, to honours compassion and respect for experience.
I have spent the last almost 20 years travelling the world. I have learned there is far more that connects us than can ever separate us and that people everywhere have a story worth telling. I want to help share these stories. Human Stories. I want to express my own personal experiences and leave room for people to ask their own questions, come at things from another direction and maybe even build bridges. Can We Draw Our Feelings Already
