My work is often influenced by my travels. An interest in local culture and the natural world around me are important components of my art practice. Working mainly in mixed media allows me the freedom to play around with a variety materials and techniques in unexpected ways.

My Story

My childhood was spent growing up in Williamstown, a bayside suburb of Melbourne. After moving to Kuranda, Far North Queensland to live for over twenty years, I began my art studies at Cairns TAFE College in the early 1990s.


Eventually moving to Albury, NSW for my youngest son to join the Flying Fruit Fly Circus. During this time, I completed a Diploma of Visual Art at Wangaratta TAFE College and then a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, NSW.


Returning to Williamstown after 30 odd years I then completed a Post Graduate Diploma in TESOL. Having taught art and ESL for over 25 years at TAFE, Community Education Centres in Qld, NSW and Victoria, and in Vietnam. I am now happily settled and retired in Iluka, NSW. I occasionally offer the odd workshop and private tuition. 


I have been involved in around forty group exhibitions and several solo shows since 1991. My work features in Grafton Regional Art Gallery’s collection in addition to public and private collections throughout Australia and Vietnam.
