I had this dream of seeing my heroine floating, projected onto a wall in full flight playing within architectural details. I thought other artists might like the same thing. Last year, I worked with 3 other women artists whose work I admire- Frances Belle Parker Yaegl woman and painter/installation artist, metal artist/ jeweller Tracy Pateman and sculptor Cass Samms.
As a group of visual artists, we all wanted the same thing- to take a leap in scale, animate our work, and take it out of the gallery setting to engage a wider and more diverse audience. The first step to achieve our goals was working with the wonderful Cast Net Productions, Danny Loyden who has worked our images into a magical combination of sound, animation and video projection.
What a great group I am privileged to work with! Our diversity in arts practice and living across the Valley, was linked by our love of the Clarence River and how it is such a defining feature of life in our Valley. The Clarence River and the idea of journey, story and identity- is where we began.
I make images of sassy women in new and mixed media. In 2016, a solo at Grafton Regional Gallery. In 2014, I was awarded the Windmill Trust Scholarship Encouragement Award.
