Residential Commission: Lark Ascending by 

Oct 2010: With William Walton’s Lark Ascending in my mind while designing this work, I attempted to create something visually exciting without being ‘noisy’; uplifting and at the same time peaceful.

While the client’s were excited by my work when they saw me at the Craft Expo at Old Parlliament House, Canberra this year, the brief was quite difficult to interpret; they rejected my first two drawings and pushed me on to create something quite out-of-the-box.

It is a fixed window to sitting room, 147cm x 54cm in a very nice house in Nichols, ACT.

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.
