I have been a practising multi-media artist for over forty years. My art training began in Graphic Design, photography and jewellery at Sydney College of the Arts (B.A. Vis. Arts).
Having taught secondary school visual arts, and as a sessional lecturer at university, I am now completing my research doctorate in Creative Arts at the University of Southern Queensland 2019.
I gain inspiration from ancient and postdigital (PD) art aesthetics, art history, and art theory. My current works express themes of humanness within the context of the digital age, melding traditional and digital methods. Printmaking plays a large role in my inspiration.
PD artworks bear unique physical traces of tactile, object materiality as object-based renditions of humanness. Metaphors for humanness, such as fragility and mortality appear in my work, as meditative and reflective reminders of our everyday digital lives.
Public Collections – artworks have been acquired by the Mitchell Library; The Australian Museum, Westpac Banking Corporation Museum, and Côa Museum in Foz Coa, Portugal.
Artworks are also held in private collections in Australia; United Kingdom; Japan, Switzerland, Mexico and Canada.
