About me

Location Brisbane, QLD, Australia
Introduction Creating is an essential part of what makes me passionate. Growing up in Papua New Guinea and being ensconced on a idealic but isolated tropical Island, I created works unhindered by repetitive domestic duties in idealistic surroundings - however I never received tuition or saw the audience that viewed or procured my work. From the late 1990’s relocation to Australia bought with it the responsibility of children, a home, work, but also the ability to look and learn. For the past ten years I owned and operated an Art Supply shop within an Art institute, here in Brisbane. Through out that time, I absorbed as much about attitudes, technique and materials as possible. Establishing the Rusty Roo artist retreat is an extension of what we feel is a shared passion for creativity.It has been a fulfilling and rewarding process. We are lucky to have some of Brisbane's well known and highly respected artists as our tutors. Landscape sculpture, Sculptural Ikebana,Ephemeral assemblages act as further inspiration to an already active imagination. This continued intimate involvement with artists and their art is a true joy.
