I am a printmaker. I love printmaking. In all its inky, painterly and organic forms. My strongest area would be reduction linocut printing – where I can spend weeks and months working on one piece, carving and printing and carving and printing to the final hand printed piece. But I love to explore and work with a wide range or different printmaking media – monoprinting, etching, cyanotype, letterpress, printmaking on clay, mokohanga, screenprinting and eco-printing.
Relief and intaglio printmaking on paper, textiles and clay.

More About Me
I think ink runs through my veins. For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed the process of printing in one form or another – be it potato printing, commercial printing and graphic design, or hand-printing printmaking pieces of artwork.
I spent 30 years working in graphic design, advertising and marketing. One of my favourite things to do during that time was the press checks for new print material. The sound of the machines clicking and clacking as they worked. The smell of ink on the presses. The vibration through the floor as the machines did their thing.
I loved print. But I yearned for a slower and hands-on approach to printing. Throughout my commercial career I dipped by big toe back into the world of printmaking fine art, but never really afforded myself the time to focus on it, and develop my skills.
I moved to Maleny from Brisbane in 2009, and there began the realisation of a dream and two of my passions – printmaking and teaching.
