I have a studio in East St Kilda, Melbourne. I believe in art for beauty’s sake, for honouring the things in your life, history, ancestors and sense of belonging in the landscape. I enjoy art as a meditation, feeling the essense in a quiet brush stroke. Music has always carried me through my creative cycles.
I have a website with fine art photos and drawings/paintings at: hive website also a book design site with my blog BeautifulCurio about design, art and poetry
I have also started the Women’s online gallery to help women who may have experienced mental illness :http://www.womensonlinegallery.com – to exhibit their fine art in a professional and friendly site. We have six artists showing currently, with drawings, sculpture, photography and more! Just email if you want to be involved- firstname.lastname@example.org
2010 – selected finalist for the A.M.E Bale Art Prize for Works on Paper for traditional realistic art.
2011-2010 – I was a cafe-poet-in-residence at Pheast48 in Armadale in cahoots with Australian Poetry Ltd.
In late 2011 I launched my book, ‘Nature – a gift’ at Pheast48 in Armadale. A limited edition fine art book with 30 poems and 46 illustrations it casts it’s eye on Nature and our relationship to it.
In 2009 I published a beautiful book of art and poetry with Naomi Downie called ‘The Hidden Self’, which was launched at Dante’s in Gertrude St. Later that year, Kate LePlastrier and I had an exhibition called ‘halos & shadows’ at Synergy Gallery, in Northcote. It was a wonderful experience of collaboration.
