about me

Artist Statement

I’ve been involved in the visual arts most of my life. Several years ago I returned to my first love, painting, after many years working as a commercial photographer and educator. I now work full-time in paint, mixed media, collage and digital photomontage.

My studies at Monash, Latrobe, Deakin and University of Melbourne have provided me with a strong background in literature, media, psychology, textile design and art. Some of the themes that concern me currently include the unreliability of memory, the role of storytelling in our construction of self, and the infiltration of the past into the present.
