I’ve been a practicing artist for many years, starting with drawing and painting but in the past ten years I’ve focused on printmaking, artist books and paper objects. I specialise in the creative printmaking technique of monoprinting, using plant materials, stencils and other found objects to develop images on paper, creating layers of rich colour and flowing marks. Using natural materials I creatively explore my enduring but complex relationship to the natural environment, actively engaging through observation and awareness.
I love to share my passion for monoprinting and book arts, and regularly run workshops and post my studio news to my blog. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, I’ve undertaken community arts residencies and am represented in the James Hardie Library of Australian Fine Art at the State Library of Queensland and in numerous private collections including local hospitals.
