Angophoras: collage, handmade papers on collagraph print

I have many modes of practice and like to combine them, for example a collagraph print or a digital print can be used as the background for a drawing or collage.


Play: watercolour and ink on natural dyed paper

My practice includes paper making, printmaking, painting, drawing, stitching, collage, card making, beading, sewing, dyeing, writing and photographing.

I record some of these on Instagram and enjoy the daily act of creating and selecting an image.

Walking around my neighbourhood in Bondi or Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest or travelling further afield in Australia and elsewhere, I am attracted by the details, colour and form of the surroundings and use these images as points of reference to respond to a place.

On the Surface: handmade paper, watercolour, ink and coloured pencil

To meander into imagination and make a mark which becomes an image connected to a memory is a great pleasure.
