About

I am a studio-based full-time artist living in Queensland. I started painting in 1998, inspired by an exhibition of Emily Kngwarreye's work. Although I have painted landscapes and portraits my work is now, and has been since 2000, abstract and geometric.

My current work is consistent with my ongoing exploration into the use of a variety of found and discarded objects to create geometrical artworks with lines and rhythms. I work with wooden boxes from Europe, rulers and other measuring devices, wire and metal objects and other bits and pieces that appeal to me. I utilise the evidence left by past usage and other kinds of manipulation and handling to bring these materials into another realm and another public.
