- I have been a Visual Artist for all of my adult life and now also enjoy filmmaking. I am passionate about creating visually to draw attention to environmental and social concerns- through artwork, food, film....or any other medium that leads me down the path of sustainability and social awareness. I am now consumed by the healing potential of colour, essence and dyeing which have been my latest passion...Wearable Art "Of the Essence" Healing Coats.

New project with Open ABC - Artist to Artist
Introducing my Artists to Artist partner Peter Carnavas who is a fabulous children's author/illustrator living here on the coast. He is only young yet has had five books published in his short career so far. Making his short film doco will be a privilege so I hope I can do him justice. I will keep you posted over the next few weeks as it develops. It has been a big learning curve learning about putting together a script to fit the bill, and interviewing techniques, but enjoyable just the same. Docos seem to be happening in my life at the moment, with another happeniing simutaneously about weeds. Another children's book author Jill Morris is filming me dyeing weeds tomorrow..... It is like a new adventure in making art in a new form. I am up for the challenge!
