I love the sea! It reflects life in so many ways that can only be imagined. I swim every day and for the last few years, seaweed has been instrumental in my creative imaginings. I have been using a combination of my imagination and creativity, often arising unconsciously, to foster my wondering and curiousity and from this, I have and am continuing to develop a body of work, using the ocean and all it holds as inspiration. I have been keeping a visual diary since 1979, however it is only over the last ten years my artwork has taken a turn into a deeply personal exploration of my long history of ideas relating to my emotional life. I have come to know many different parts of myself through my art practice. This continues and connects me with hope for my future as an artist. Until recently, my artwork has been more of a private, rather than public, exploration though I believe that my love of art began when I was introduced to the Surrealists as a young girl at school. I create artworks using 2-D and 3-D processes to understand the deep murmurings of my psyche.

Join us for a day-long immersive experience with artists and changemakers demonstrating how arts and creativity is transforming lives and building stronger, more connected communities.
