Fox Hunt. Repurposing the cork backed placemat and wooden door panel.
I am an artist living in Mansfield. The artworks I create are not only inspired by my surroundings where I live in North East Victoria, but often reference New Zealand where I was born.
Working in ceramic, printmaking, weaving and repurposing materials I like to tell a story and bring a 'smile to the mind'.
