I love to work in layers. Layers of memories, emotions, drawings and texture stimulate my visual art practice. The catalyst for my creativity is my local environment. Tropical coastlines and rich rainforests near Mackay, Queensland, are a source of constant inspiration. Experimenting with new mediums and materials is always exciting and I have recently been making environmental sculptures, waxed paper bowls and artists books. Large scale mixed media painting brings me most satisfaction.
I enjoy sharing my skills through teaching and mentoring, and was the Director and Artist in Residence at the multi award winning Gargett Gallery for 8 years. Previously I worked with the former Mirani Shire Council to establish the Mirani Museum. I was fortunate to be trained in all aspects of museum management which included permanent and temporary social history and art exhibitions, cataloguing, promotion and more.
