I was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1967. An award-winning Painter and Photographer, I completed my Bachelor of Fine Art at La Trobe University, Bendigo in 1992.
My work speaks to my love of the natural world and our interconnection physically and emotionally to the environment. Our reliance on nature for survival and nourishment and our deep need for a healthy planet remains my primary source of inspiration.
Recently moving away from structured, realistic portrait works in Oils to the unpredictability of pouring paint, I am mimicking the repetition of pattern in nature, the macro and micro, creating suggestions and communications between viewer and nature.
Recent works with Synthetic Polymer (acrylic paint), resin and found objects on MDF board are abstract imagined-scapes, worlds within worlds, in celebration of colour, art and natural forms.
