I migrated from the UK in my 30's and have been here since 1990. I attended the ANU School of Art, graduating in 2000. Although I have been fortunate enough to travel to many parts of the world, it is Canberra that has given me roots. I am very grateful for that, My concerns about the reef are also concerns for this small city as it rapidly grows and changes to meet the needs of a bigger population. I hope there will be a gentle touch on this fragile environment too as we sweep through with our constant demands for more.
