Bio and Statement

I have been working in the Northern rivers on rainforest trees and endangered species since being in the area in the late 1990s. I have also been travelling and sketching further North and in drought-stricken areas. I have been concerned about over farming and housing destroying habitation. I studied art in London in the 70s working on feminist issues . I then moved to the rural areas and over to Australia where I was born. I have been exhibiting work regularly with Caldera artists (then doing traditional landscape painting) and semi abstract work and prints, etchings and lino cuts have been shown in Murwillumbah arts trail for the last two years and some time ago when the Community Print Makers ran their biennale and showed work in the Tweed River Art Gallery, both old and new.
