After being a member of the lovely Creative Spaces artistic community at River Studios in West Melbourne for 3 years, I have recently moved into a great space at Fundere Studios in West Footscray, sharing with fellow artist Jane Ansted.
I completed my more formal art studies at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne University’s School of Art and I now work part time as an independent practicing artist.
I work across multiple mediums, letting the realisation of my idea dictate the best material to use. Generally this ranges from painting and printmaking to smaller-scale sculptural works.
I love to experiment with materials and have been experimenting with encaustic medium (beeswax & damar mix). While I have created larger installation pieces using encaustic, I have also been making smaller works by drawing into the tactile wax surface with etching tools, and also transferring my photographic work onto the waxed surface.
This year I have picked up the paint brushes again and have just started to get back in to printmaking. I will continue to explore themes of decreasing natural habitat and endangered animal species and environmental issues generally.
