About

I am a multidisciplinary person and use any materials that may help me express my work. I have worked with oil paints on canvas‚ rainforest timbers‚ glass‚ photography‚ cast metals‚ and newspaper. My ideas reflect the environment around me.
Throughout my life my creations have reflected my love of life and nature.‘I have worked continuously over the last eight years in my home studio at T.A.F.E. and the Tasmanian university‚ developing and making interesting and challenging forms’.
‘The work I am developing at university (M.F.A.D.) challenges me to use recycled float glass and fusing‚ slumping and moulding it in a way to express the beauty and loss of our native forests of Tasmania’.
