I have been an artist for as long as I can remember, however I began exhibiting after doing my 2nd degree a BFA in 1988 majoring in sculptural ceramics. I have travelled extensively and with my love of history from my university days, these two things have had a big impact on my art work. I was a teacher for 35 years and always encouraged art as an excellent way to communicate about what is important in your life. I am formally from Tasmania a place of stunning beauty and a big Green movement , and I relocated to Cairns in 2016. I love the sensory overload of the tropics, and this is expressed in my work. 

My art is my meditation. I love the process and my work is almost subliminal, it comes from somewhere almost by magic. My work always features women, my alter ego, they can be peaceful or active, meditating, flying or being drawn into an abyss. They are always strong and embrace every moment with what destiny has thrown them. I am fiercely loyal to mother Earth and have always tried to bring awareness to environmental problems that may destroy our fragile ecosystem. In summary, my art is didactic, it is my passion and it reflects my optimism to embrace life and communicate. My women tell a story. I am here and I am strong! I am proudly involved in the EXTINCTION REBELLION movement.
