Artist Statement

I am a Melbourne based artist working in sculpture.  I completed my BA, sculpture at Prahran in 1985 and my Curatorial Postgrad at Melbourne University in 1992.

My first major exhibition was in 2002 at Moor Street Art Gallery, Fitzroy and I have been exhibiting on a regular basis.

In 2017 I had an art residency in Stanley, Tasmania where I was mentored by Jon Eiseman, Sculptor. I have also curated a number of exhibitions for other groups and artists, in particular “Libart” in 2005 and 2010-2012 for the Association Sculpture Victoria for their annual exhibitions. In 2002 I was artist in residence at Catholic Ladies College, Eltham.

I embrace a wide range of different media in my sculptural work. My methods are diverse. For example the use of a domestic skill such as crochet to create a bronze sculpture, the making of ceramic pieces using traditional methods, embroidering on flywire.

In 1998 I started Shelter Shed Art with other artists where I was able to bring an art appreciation experience to primary school students and to make sculpture fun and enjoyable.

My major research thesis was on the Meat Workers Union Patronage of the Arts in 1992.
