A love of natural history illustration led me to undertake a Bachelor of Visual Art majoring in Illustration and then Painting as a Graduate Diploma at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
Having been involved in the family antique and secondhand business for the last 20 years I have always been fascinated how objects are interpreted. This has become part of my visual language and an integral element in the development of concepts for my work.
My current practice involves drawing using ink on paper and embroidery thread and fabric collage to explore the relationship between people and the natural world, technology and science. Many of the issues and concepts involve nature using elements of my home state of Southeast Queensland, such as flora, fauna and architecture.
As part of my Endangered project I started drawing frequently at the Queensland Museum this and my love of antiques and natural history has led me to studying postgraduate coursework in Museum Studies at the University of Queensland. (2017).
