Originally from Canberra I have been living and creating art in the Jervis Bay area for five years. I have just finished my role as the Secretary/Publicity Officer for Jervis Bay and Basin Arts Inc. as this organisation has gone into recess until sufficient like minded and willing artists will take up the management roles. In 2018-2019 I was a community representative on the Shoalhaven Arts Board.
I gained my Visual Art Degree at the Canberra School of Art, ANU as a mature-age student and went on to study a Graduate Diploma and Master of Education. I spent twenty years in Canberra schools teaching visual art, media studies and photo media.
I have exhibited my art in selected, group and solo exhibitions since 1998. My work can be found in ACT Government and private collections around Australia and overseas. My most recent artwork can currently be found at Huskisson Gallery and Shoalhaven Regional Gallery, Nowra.
