Cv and Bio

I am an artist based in Tasmania.  Originally from Sydney where I studied art at Liverpool technical college and Sydney City Art Institute.
After completing my Bachelor of Visual arts, I turned my hand to follow a career in the animation industry, which I have been working on and off for the past 27 years.

During this time I relocated to Hobart to further my art studies and work in animation as head of design. In 2006 I decided to dedicate my time to work as a full-time artist.

My work as a mixed media artist and doll maker has been well received and has been gaining interest from local and international buyers.

Currently, my artworks involve larger hand-painted art dolls and assemblage art based on Eastern European folktales conceived in the Australian environment.

I also teach art-related workshops at Nolan Art Gallery.
