The modern artist like the scientist, experiments with her medium
Investigating its possibilities, discovering and inventing forms that are “new”.
(Art Through the ages)
My work is about experimenting with different mediums.
I often work with found objects
Pushing them to the “new” and beyond their limits.
Place and environment reflect strongly in my work.
I live in the Illawarra, Industrial, ocean and earth.
I work instinctively
The materials I use suggest where I need to take them
Then it is simply removing the bits I don’t want.
Pre planned drawings rarely figure in what I do.
As well as Sculpture I paint, draw, am a printmaker, do photography.
Paint silk, and do installation work.
I exhibit widely and have sold work both locally and o/seas
