I am a South Australian visual artist working with a range of traditional and digital processes including printmaking, encaustic and oil painting, pokerwork on wooden panels, artist books, on-glaze porcelain, and small scale bronze casting. In my current work I incorporate a cast of creatures and plants, which have become part of my visual language, to create various scenarios. The upside-down nature of some images reflects the upside-down nature of life. My characters live in a world where nothing is certain.
I teach part-time at Adelaide College of the Arts. In 1998 I published ‘Printmaking with Photopolymer Plates’ and I run workshops in printmaking and artist books in Australia and overseas.
I am running 2 workshops in my Welland studio in June for the Art Gallery of SA, multiple block lino workshops. This is then the end of workshops run at 87 Frederick Street Welland. I am packing up my studio (or most of it) and taking it to Trentham and setting up Agave Print Studio which will open in November, 2014 in time for the Daylesford Mount Macedon Open Studio event on November 1-2, 8-9, 15-16, 10am-5pm.
Due to my move interstate some studio items (Large Format Epson 7600, Wards 13″ kiln), art materials, prints and some household bric-a-brac will be available for purchase at a studio clearance sale on July 11-12, Friday and Saturday, 11am-5pm. Call in and say hello and goodbye!
