ART CAREER

I have been a full time artist for over twenty years. I am a potter, exploring raku, sawdust and saggar firing, and I paint abstract landscapes on canvas and linen, using acrylics, oil sticks, oil and charcoal.

My work has sold nationally and internationally.

ACHIEVEMENTS

I have had a number of solo exhibitions throughout NSW, the most recent, in place until the middle of July 2011 at the New England Regional Art Museum in Armidale entitled “Still” showing both ceramics and paintings.

I judged “Frost over Barraba” in 2010 and have curatored "Crossing New England” an exhibition of selected artists held at the Armidale Art Gallery, for the last five years.

Inspiration and motivation

Living in a fairly isolated part of the beautiful New England Tablelands, I appreciate every day, the changing mood, colours and energy of the landscape beyond my front fence.
My paintings and ceramic work emerge from this landscape.
