artist statement

What fascinates me is the gulf of emotion I experience between the warmth and concern I feel for our human race, and the disdain. Individually we are awe-inspiring, even as a community we shine, but as a mass we destroy. Why? This is what I want to pursue in my work.

Texture is what it’s about for me in making art: physical texture—blending mixed media, collage and materials from nature—and emotional texture. My mixed media canvasses and ceramics investigate issues that concern or intrigue me. My figure work examines the emotional make-up of the subject.

Homelessness and child abuse are issues behind my novels. I strive to give both a face.

a bit about

There's a lot to say and do in the time we've got.

After many years in performing arts administration I made the decision to commit to a long-held desire to make art.

Currently I am studying at the National Art School in Sydney, Australia.
