I am fortunate to be married to a working artist with numerous children and
grandchildren. I keep active in the community art scene at Shoalhaven and sit on
the Council Arts board. With the Kitchen Table Poets since its inception we have
run a number of poetry festival/picnic days and readings in the area.
I have been writing since I was a child, at that time unable to do much else due to Polio.
Now a member of the Fellowship of Australian Writers (Shoalhaven region) I have
had the International Women’s Day Award for community service and I continue to
speak on fine art and art business practice. I also advise Western Sydney
university Arts Board.
My husband and I both are Patrons of the Australian Ballet, and Opera Australia
I worked as a journalist for 20 years and five years as Arts manager for a Sydney auction house.
My published work includes Against the Tide, a biography of Robert Dickerson,
Chiaroscuro (collected poetry) and inclusion in All This Life, This Broken Hill,
Stet, The Naked Pomegranate, Tangents, Noosa Blue, and The Canberra Times.
