I’ve been a freelance fine artist / graphic designer since finishing my BA (graphic design) in 1993 and think I have one of the most wonderful careers in the world!

I used to do primarily graphic design and can literally say I managed to fall into fine art and textile art. In 98 I managed to trip down some stairs which left me with a crushed vertebrae and around 6 months of having to be horizontal almost all the time. I decided since there wasn’t a whole lot I could do (sitting down was completely out of the question) to order in an easel, canvasses and oil paints over the phone. I’d always wanted to do oils but could never validate the cost as I didn’t know if Fine art would sell.

As it turned out it did! I’ve since branched into textile based art, creating stitched, heavily textured pieces for the wall that combine paint, fabric, digital prints, thread, metal and other media. I’ve won many awards both in Australia and overseas and my work is in private and corporate collections internationally. I’ve been published in plenty of magazines and books and I spent almost two years as the editor of the fine art textiles magazine Textile Fibre Forum.
