I attended College of Fine Arts UNSW. No permanent damage was done and I made a full recovery. In my final year of Art school I won the NSW Travelling Art Scholarship . This provided me with a studio in Paris for 5 months and ignited my passion for travel . Subsequently , I established an art career; exhibited with Robin Gibson Gallery and taught at TAFE for 9 years. In 2019 I exhibited with Sculpture by the Sea for the sixth time and I recently staged my 23rd solo exhibition . I continue to persist.
