My artistic vision is the exploration of the fragility & diversity of life, one aspect being our natural environment & the other in the more human realms of healing from trauma.
My work is held in regional galleries and collections both private & public including the Dax Collection in Melbourne, the world’s 3rd largest collection of work by those who have experienced trauma.
