This website draw focus to my art practice and my art-making processes.
I am primarily a painter working across painting, drawing, mixed media, writing, curating and art education.
A little about myself would include that I was born in Adelaide SA, raised in Elizabeth in the nineteen sixties, Canberra to Tokyo in the seventies then back in Canberra then Toowoomba Canberra Newcastle the eighties & nineties and then parts of the far Sth Coast of NSW and the 2000’s steadily based in Canberra, currently living and working from studios in Kambah and Griffith ACT.
In 1995, I established and still run a teaching studio/workshop for children and teens in Griffith, known as studioMAP see link : http://www.studiomap.com.au/smwp/
I love this work and my job and today it’s a successful enterprise based within a community visual art centre, combining art studios teaching facilities and art galleries; known as M16 Artspace see link: http://www.m16artspace.com.au/ .
In 2014 I co-founded co- manage and co-curate a unique and tiny art gallery (18x20x28cm) called Chutespace – http://www.m16artspace.com.au/chutespace, together we have staged over 100 3 week / mini-contemporary art exhibitions.
I live with my partner and our three children and strive to live an artistic life.
