Bark Life

Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Hospital | Whitehorse Art Collection | KickArts Gallery Solo Exhibition

About This Project

Work from this collection is held in the Whitehorse Art Collection and three works were commissioned for the Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Hospital in Sydney, Australia.

Bark Life was also the title of my solo exhibition held at KickArts Cairns in March 2016

I work in layers; textiles, painted surfaces, collage, are all used to build up a feeling of depth and detail, which is reflected in the themes which are present in my work, – drawing you in and inviting you to touch and look deeper.

My work addresses concepts about changes in self-identity. I grew up surrounded and fascinated by fabric and textiles. There is a vital femininity to my work, drawn from my foundation in female crafts.
