I live and create at Lyrebird Gully Studio in the spectacular Hawkesbury River region of NSW.

I studied Fine Arts and Graphic Design and during my early career I worked in art studios and advertising agencies. My background as a Graphic Designer and passion for our natural environment heavily influences my bodies of work, most of which are about the Australian landscape and its flora and bird life, the provenance of which is very important in my practise as an nature observer and artist.

The main focus of my art practise is mixed media collage using traditionally made "Hanji" mulberry papers, water colours and gouache.

All my works begin with photography and graphite or watercolour field sketches most of which are collected on my travels.

I feel that the intense colours of the pure pigments combined with the organic textures of the mulberry paper evokes the power of the Australian landscape with vivid colours, textural layering and gestural finishes. 

As well as works on paper and canvas I am also passionate about handcrafting with natural fibres, creating the unique and whimsical Gillteacosies and handcrafted natural fibre vessels.
