I  first created The Wattle Room back in 2007

when I was awarded the National Art School Tim Storrier and Annette Onslow Residency

at Cite Internationale des Arts Paris.

An extraordinary inspiring time         for myself

where I was able to visit museums and exhibitions on offer,

meet other international artists, and have my own first solo exhibition there.

To have concentrated time to fully nurture my

arts and poetry.



My art has always been informed by poetry and literature.

It gives me a foundation and structure

with

the reminder that the ancient art of story telling,

is a guide to the diversity of what it means to be human.




















While in Paris I developed a love of Samuel Beckett's novella's poems and plays.           

As serendipity would have it, his play Happy Days was on in Paris.

The exaggeration of  narrative form and absurdity very much appealed to me and

this became the seed for my own creativity in all it's many forms.



And so The Wattle Room came into it's own                 of a three

dimensional book with a diaristic approach,

and each exhibition represents a chapter in my life and my life experiences at the time.




Themes of identity, mortality, landscape and interior eccentric spaces,
gallop through my art.
