Exhibitions

I have been exhibiting my art for sixteen years. After completing a Master of Creative Arts at the University of Wollongong in 2004 I have been developing my practice full time. During my career I have been exhibited by a range of galleries including Gallery 41,Camden Fine Art Gallery, Parklife Gallery and Cafe and Beach Art Bulli.

My work has been shown and awarded in many group exhibitions including, The Paddington Art Prize 2010 ( National finalist), The Sydney Royal, Art Equity Sydney, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery Gymea, Broken Hill City Gallery, Southern Cross University SA, The Powerhouse Liverpool, ArtinPort Port Kembla, Meroogal Women's Art Prize, Fisher's Ghost prize Campbelltown, Australian Society of Miniature Art, University of Wollongong and The Thirroul Seaside and Arts Festival, where I also coordinate the miniatures exhibition.

I have been commissioned to create paintings for private and public art spaces including The Panels Project for the exterior of Wollongong Regional Gallery (7 panels),The University of Wollongong, Phamacare at Warriwood, Ripe Interiors Surry Hills, Surfers Chalet Appartments and Lake Illawarra High School. I have designed and made sets for plays such as “Kabbarli” and “Political Fiction” and many school productions at Port Hacking High, Miranda. Currently I am coordinating and participating in a mural project for Caritas Australia.
My practice has evolved from a Diploma of Art Education, Alexander Mackie CAE and twenty five years experience teaching art and design.

Currently I have taught private workshops based in abstraction and am also involved in the community arts groups IAVA, Ican and Project Contemporary Artspace.

I continue to develop my mixed media, abstracted works, and exhibit in solo and group shows regularly.
