As a child, I travelled extensively. The exposure to other diverse cultures had a significant impact on the development of my aesthetic.
I spent my teenage years in Adelaide and graduated from Stanley Street School of Art in 1969.
My art practice is mostly two dimensional; drawing, painting and design and I have a long held love of fibre arts.
I was an art teacher for many years and during that time travelled extensively to visit art galleries. Art history has always particularly interested me and informs much of how I see the world.
I taught secondary school art but over the years, have also taught adult classes. With April Hague, we have run Life Drawing for adults for the last 7 years.
I am a passionate gardener and my garden is now my canvas. It, like an art practice, takes many forms and is an ever changing design opportunity.
