About Me

In 2017 I was thrilled to visit the 
Kathe Kollowitz Museum in Berlin to 
see her fabulous works and her printing press.

Working at The Blue Studio 

My Studio is located behind the Information Centre at Rear 106 Murphy Street, Wangaratta.  I spend some time most days here in between teaching VCE Art at Galen College. Visitors are always welcome if you can catch me, although my routine is inconsistent each day. Appointments are advised.

The beauty of my studio is that there is plenty of space for me to work as well as having it set up for an adult evening class and a social group of ladies who work in my studio one afternoon each week .

As Director of Art Gallery on Ovens

In September 2019, with the commitment of 11 other local artists, I formed an artist run professional community gallery in Wangaratta.

The gallery holds solo and group exhibitions of the Resident artists with Guest artists booking into spaces in the yearly calendar. 
I really enjoy mentoring and assisting artists with their exhibitions and encouraging artists and visitors to actively engage in art in our community.
