In 1981 I graduated from Curtin University in Western Australia with a Degree in Fine Arts: painting major, sculpture minor. In addition I was fortunate to spend a year in the Curtin Design School working with precious metals.
I have maintained a studio practice since that time, exhibiting regularly and traveling to work in the landscape. In the last ten years I have worked with educational and community groups as well as government entities on community engagement in nature projects. I currently hold the position of Artist in Residence with the Oceans Institute at The University of Western Australia. In this capacity I work with animal and plant biologists whose work pertains to the ocean and waterways. My studio is at the Floreat site of CSIRO where the artistic opus of the residency in underway.
