I studied printmaking at the National Institute of the Arts in Canberra and have over 35 years’ experience as a visual artist. Currently I work full-time from my own workshop and at Megalo Print Studio as a printmaker and illustrator. I prefer to work with simple, primitive techniques such as stencil and relief and often use cheap or recycled materials. In 2002 I was awarded an ACT Government Visual Arts Fellowship, in 2011 a CAPO Fellowship, and my work is represented in the Australian National Gallery and many of Canberra's public places. I have exhibited consistently since 1982 and my work has won awards locally and internationally - including the Canberra M16 Drawing Prize and an AGDA Distinction Award for Illustration in 2006, and First Prize in the 14th International Competition of Illustration, Teatrio Cultural Association of Venice in 2008. My illustrations have been selected twice for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair International Illustrators Exhibition (2007, 2010) and exhibited at many other venues in Italy. In 2013 I was Bridgeguard artist -in-residence in Štúrovo, Slovakia, and in 2015 my prints were selected for the both the Guanlan Print Biennial, China and the Krakow Print Triennial, Poland.
