ABOUT

I paint, work in clay, construct, draw, take photos, work with mosaics and make videos.  I practice my art in many ways and places – in the studio, in the community, through writing and publication of papers, teaching, through community and public art projects and professional development training.  I have exhibited widely.

I received my PhD (Victoria University, Melbourne) for research into the effects of arts practice on recovery after trauma, loss and grief (sexual abuse) and a Master of Fine Arts (Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne) for research into the artist’s response into the impacts of the First World War.  I have built much of my creative life upon the artist’s role in expressing and responding to the most profound human experiences.

My research into trauma, grief and loss has led to acclaimed installation exhibitions that speak to those profound feelings which are so hard to describe in words.  I continue to work closely with victims of sexual abuse and family violence, and those experiencing life-threatening illness and their family and friends who share feelings of loss and grief.

I formed Artists in Community International with performing artist Alex Pinder as the umbrella organisation for our international and community work.   Together we have run many projects with communities throughout India, Nepal and Thailand, and individually within Australia.  You may be interested in looking at our separate website. www.artistsincommunity.me

I have published a number of articles and contributed to journals and  books on the subject of arts practice in recovery from trauma, and community development, as well as presenting my work through conferences in Australia and abroad.  Thank you for your interest in my work.
