I was born near Sydney, Australia and now live in Tasmania.
First I trained in photography in the days of film and darkroom chemicals. Then I studied ceramics and visual arts. I attained a Masters Degree in Creative Arts and set up a ceramics studio and also worked in community and cultural development.
Infinity Design was the name of a graphic design business I set up and I also worked in University art schools in various parts of Australia.
In 1996 I was artist in residence at the Artigas Foundation Studios in Barcelona and then spent time in USA, Asia and Europe. I moved to Tasmania in 2011, the year MONA opened (Museum of Old and New Art) which has changed the Tasmanian economy and cultural landscape. I currently work as Arts and Cultural Development Officer near Hobart, the main city of Tasmania.
I have just completed a one month residency at Haihatus in Joutsa, Finland. I made brushes from found materials and used Sumi ink to create marks on paper which were exhibited inside a mysterious black tower in a field of snow.
