I am a German born Australian artist, with a deep love and connection to this land. I have made Australia my home for over 30 years and much of my inspiration is found in the natural environment around me in my immediate surroundings.
I am passionate about the Australian landscape, peoples and animals, reflected in the themes through out all my artwork.
I would identify myself as some what of a feminist , but more accurately as a humanist , for while my work is subjective and metaphorical of my own experiences , it is a reflection of the human narrative experience as a whole, regardless of gender or status.

Art is a political and practical passion of mine. I believe in all aspects of the hand making process of creation , which translates into me creating not only the art work but the frame , sourcing and creating local pigments and using materials found in my immediate environment such as rocks found in my garden and reusing materials that have a value in their quality as well as having a value in that they are not discarded but rather reused to become a thing of beauty and meaning.
I am passionate about art , I am passionate about the environment (especially my local immediate one) , I am passionate about materials and how they are used , and I am passionate about combining these things to make something unique and personal to not just myself, but also to the beholder.
