I am Australian, born in Papua New Guinea in November 1967. I work in pencil, pen inks, water colours and acrylics. My Ex-Libris/Bookplate designs have been published both in Australia and Portugal, also exhibited in Poland and Mexico. Refer 2012 ‘Bookplate Artists and Their Bookplates‘ by Andrew G. Peake, Tudor Australia Press, Dulwich, South Australia and Artur Mario Da Mota Miranda, Portugal, 2015, ’19th International Contemporary Ex-Libris Artists-26 Modern Women Bookplate Designers’. My first illustrated children’s book ‘The Cassowary’s Gift’ was shortlisted by The Wilderness Society of Australia’s 2017 Environment Award for Children’s Literature. I am currently working on a children’s book of poetry and continue to enjoy my studies in the art of cartooning. I love bush walking, the practice of qigong and painting mandalas with the elderly.
