An invitation in late 2013 by a friend to participate in a group show, on the condition that I draw, ignited not only excitement but also much fear. Having not picked up a pencil since the birth of my child 6 years previous, I took quite a bit of convincing but saying yes has proved to be the right answer. And I have not looked back.
As with my costume designs, my work is detailed and precise. It tells of personally emotional travels through the use of out rightly overt signs and underlying subtle symbolism with the ever present darkness in the background always reminding us to keep looking forward (or not!).
After 3 successful group shows in 2014, I am excited to say that I will have my first solo show at "Lethbridge Gallery" in Brisbane Australia in August 2015. So while continuing to work as a costume designer and maker on a freelance basis, I am now concentrating on the next phase of my career as an artist.
And with this in mind, I hope you enjoy my work.
