I divide my time between my studio in Melbourne and our farm in the beautiful hills of South Gippsland. My
work is a mixture of collage, painting and drawing. I like to show a mixture of real and unreal in my work. The
process includes using recycled paper (collage). I like people to look at my work from a
distance and then be surprised on close inspection at the execution of the work.
All my artwork has some form of autobiographical input. This is often reflected in the collage I select.
In incorporting collage into my work I feel I can achieve a depth and interest that I could not achieve with paint alone.
I divide my time between my studio in Melbourne and my farm in the beautiful hills of South Gippsland. My work is inspired by the world around me and also influenced from my travel experiences.
My work is a modern mixture of collage and layering for depth.
Bachelor of Education in Visual Arts from The University of Melbourne.
Women are often the focal point of my artwork. I like to explore the place women have in society and the resilience they are able to show when faced with adversity.
