My art practice centres around two dimensional techniques such as painting, printmaking and alternative photography. My process currently is based on principles of collage. I have a 25 year studio practice as artist and art conservator so that I can work in a large array of materials and methods, as needed.
My workshop, RE-FOCUS, reconnect, remember, renew, repeat, explores our personal history, agency and focus and through a modified version of the Pebble Meditation.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered



My workshop, RE-FOCUS, reconnect, remember, renew, repeat, explores our personal history, agency and focus and through a modified version of the Pebble Meditation. We will be guided by the notions found herein such as “freshness, strength, reflection and freedom”.
We will use diverse art materials and methods, draw ideas from our personal experience with family, friends, and nature, for example. We shall use different methods such as collaging, drawing, painting and printing (gelli).
The result will be four connected, double-sided cards; a touchstone for students to use later.

*Other than Arts, the workshop incorporates elements of STEAM.
Materials: Colour pencils, paper scissors, paint, collage materials.
