In the same house, Wingrove at Hunters Hill I was asked to make a rather special arched feature window to the living room. I elected to translate a design of Parnel Johnson, a tutor at Sydney Technical College and an eminent designer of the late 19th century. The repeated waratah design appears as endpapers in the book “The Federation House” by Fraser and Joyce

So I’m now in my 60’s [how did that happen?!] and I feel I’ve finally hit my full stride- thought there’s still a stretch ahead! Born and lived all my life in Sydney, and loving it. Graduated from the National Art School (Randwick TAFE and East Sydney campus) in 1974 with a Diploma in Interior Design, worked for 3 years at Taronga Zoo as their Staff Artist, then took an apprenticeship with the stained glass master Stephen Moore. In 1982 I left his studio to take up private practice.
