Artist Statement

Collapse (Golden Gully) was created during a month-long residency (November, 2015) in the historic gold rush town of Hill End, NSW. Incorporating the richly coloured local soil, this mixed media drawing is a meditation on the continual erosion and transformation of Golden Gully, a landscape sculpted over time by the forces of both nature and man. The drawing focuses on the site of the famous ‘Arch’, a precarious bridge of dirt and clay where the sky is framed by the earth. Collapsing the boundaries of earth and sky, past and present, I aimed to represent the ‘Arch’ as a landscape in motion.

Inner North Story

I moved into a lovely share-house in the leafy suburb of Downer 3 years ago to be closer to my art studio at Australian National Capital Artists in Dickson and continue to enjoy each day living and working in the inner north. I am also a proud graduate of Lyneham High School.
