Working in the QTC's design studio in 1981

I started working in theatre in 1979 by walking into La Boite Theatre, Brisbane, to help with the bump-in of 'They Shoot Horses... Don't They' and basically lived there for the next 2 weeks!!

Then a director, John Milson, saw an exhibition I had put on in the theatre's foyer and asked me if I would help paint the set for 'The Threepenny Opera' for the Twelfth Night Theatre Company, My first professional gig...

Then there was a pile of shows painted and built and a few designs made for La Boite and the Brisbane Arts Theatre...

Then when I was 20 I did a season at QTC as the design assistant, working with James Ridewood and Graham McClean... We painted with glue size paint and I learnt a great deal...

Then I had a small accident and had to take a year off, so back to the Visual Arts...
