About me & my work:

I have always been driven by the creative in me. I have never had a job. I do what I love. Is that luck or dogged determination?

After studying painting and drawing at The City Art Institute in Paddington, I hit the ground running with fellow students Louise Olsen and Liane Rossler, and in 1985 started the design company Dinosaur Designs. Initially the main goal of this resin jewellery business was to cover our rents and buy art materials.

Now nearly 30 years old, Dinosaur Designs has grown into one of Australia’s leading design companies with stores in Sydney, Melbourne and New York.

I am also a painter and sculptor. I work with solid colour and soft organic shapes. My 2012 exhibition Polychromatism shows my exploration of chroma relationships between my sculptural forms and my paintings.
