About my work
I love making prints on paper in my small Drouin studio. My work celebrates the natural environment and my love of the Australian wilderness.
As urban development builds up around my hometown of Drouin, I hope my images of our fragile environment raise awareness in others.
Is there a link between gardening and your creative practice?
My art prints depict local plants, animals, birds, and insects. My work celebrates Gippsland's remarkable biodiversity.
What will you show and share on the day?
Visitors will see how I hand carve my printing blocks and print them (if temperatures aren't too high). I'll also display my original art prints, cards, and calendars.
What's in your veggie patch?
Mainly herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, and silver beet.
A beetroot: rich in hue and round with wispy bits.
