Hand-printing onto paper and capturing the calming and quirky moments from nature drive my art. Working with relief, contact and intaglio printmaking, I find peace and presence in the natural environment, away from the haste of modern life.

Ink runs through my veins. I have always loved printing, from potato prints to commercial printing and graphic design, to creating my own artwork. After 30 years in graphic design, advertising, and marketing, I realized I missed the hands-on approach to printmaking.

The digital age significantly reduced printed materials, so I built a web development and marketing business, which I ran for nearly 15 years. But my heart stayed with print. I moved to Maleny from Brisbane in 2009, pursuing my passions for printmaking and teaching.

Reduction linocut printing is my specialty, where I can spend weeks carving and printing. I also explore monoprinting, etching, cyanotype, letterpress, printmaking on clay, mokohanga, screenprinting, and eco-printing.

There’s not enough time for it all, but I’ll give it my best shot! Viva la print ????

The natural environment is my primary inspiration. Whether it’s my photos of captured moments or working with organic materials, being in nature’s spaces—my garden, a country drive, or a bush walk—calms and grounds me, fueling my creativity.

I love sharing my craft by teaching various printmaking techniques. I run small group workshops from my studio in North Maleny. Teaching and being a professional artist were childhood dreams, and in January 2018, I launched my printmaking workshops, living my passions.

Printmaking can be simpler than it seems and a great complement to painting and drawing. New and modern materials have made many areas of printmaking accessible from non-professional and home studio environment. I love to introduce students to this creative medium, hoping they leave with new skills and confidence to continue printing.

With my art, I can bring the natural world, its stillness and calming qualities, inside my busy world, to simply stop and enjoy the process of creating something hand crafted.
