Location: Adelaide, Australia
I am a poet and artist working across a range of media, including works on paper, handmade books, papercuts, mosaic, textiles, wearable art and sculpture.
Originality and creative excellence are the most important criteria in all my art making. I use found and recycled materials, both for their beauty and because I don't like waste.
I am inspired by natural forms and by African, South Pacific Islander and Japanese traditional and modern art forms, particularly woodcuts, sumie and calligraphy.
I am a passionate collector and beachcomber, dumpster-diver and border-line hoarder. I travel frequently, especially in Japan and South-East Asia, and my work refers to these travels and the images, objects and people I encounter on these journeys.
My work has been collected by individuals since the late 1980s, exhibited in galleries in Tokyo, New Zealand and Australia, and is held in the Fryer Collection at the University of Queensland, Brisbane.
