Welcome to my Studio/Gallery : ART, IDENTITY & PLACE
A space where I fuse together images and create paintings, collage and etchings with a female gaze and environment-friendly focus derived from wild places, deep time and archaeology.

A large catalogue of unique original and digital prints can be viewed at Pinterest where boards display my artwork arranged in different categories and types of media and technique that relate to various topics.
Lake Mungo: a site of ancient human habitation as distant as 40,000 to 50,000 years ago.
Demeter & Persephone Revised: re-imagining mother and daughter relationship
The Pilbara: the Banded Iron Rock formation at 3 billion years ago when oxygen entered Earth’s atmosphere and then the early ocean rusted
I explore a possible parallel between Earth’s creative forces and artists’ and poets’ creative processes. These two parallel themes coalesce within the structure of my compositions where I use disguised symbolism, sourced from pre – Minoan art and artefacts, and from art history.
