about me

I studied painting, drawing and printmaking long ago when I did a Diploma of Art (Tapestry), before concentrating on photography alongside a career in education. The photography gradually morphed into textile design, then digital art, which slowly began to frustrate me with its limitations. The hankering for the tactile nature of painting finally turned into a commitment in 2017 and I've been painting every day since, from my home studio in Melbourne, Australia.

Most recently I have travelled full circle and begun to blend my painting and photography, enabling me to explore more deeply how art can promote social change and subvert the prevailing narrative.
