About

I am a mixed media artist living on the Sunshine Coast. After spending seven years in the TAFE system in Sydney, I emerged with the skills to practice visual art and studio pottery, and a hunger for more knowledge. I work regularly in my own studio, and am constantly inspired by visiting exhibitions, meanwhile collecting a huge library of art books for reference.

I have evolved from traditional oils, through expressive acrylics, to abstract and Mixed media/collage.
