The St. Kilda Rd. Studio
St. Kilda, Melbourne 1997-8

In a way I have always been an artist. I decided that I was definitely going to follow this path when I was 13. My friend was carving a plaster sculpture and I was drawing it. I was so relaxed and happy and thought to myself that this is what I always want to do.

My sister, Elizabeth and I were lucky because our father worked in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, as a refrigeration mechanic. He kept the rooms at the right temperature and humidity correct. We would go in with him after hours and play on the sculptures and get a really tactile experience of the paintings....

From 1979 until about 2000 I worked on and off in the theatre as a scenic artist and production manager et al... Later, I moved more into film work.  You can click this button to get a bit more of my creative history...
