Nell was raised in the south west of W.A. Living in small towns with strong communities and spending her time largely outdoors. Whether in the native bush, learning to discern the difference between Jarrah or Red Gums, or by the ocean.
Nell predominately worked in graphite and charcoal in her 20s. Traveling extensively called for a creative practice that was light on the luggage. After a tumultuous early 30s of loss and recovery, Nell found time to explore her creativity once again.
Becoming a mother and wife has changed her perspective on life and herself. Developing calmness and cultivating the patience required for long hours refining the practice of oil painting.
