Designer & Photographer

I studied photography to better document my design work. But then photography taught me about light and how it falls in a space. I see interiors and photography as entwined now – one informs the other.

Film & TV

The circus like fun of a film set is in my blood - I grew up in that gypsy lifestyle. Camaraderie and creativity. Later working out on my own, the hard work and sometimes tricky negotiations. But still the energising sense of working towards a common goal, telling a story, creating a world.

Handmade

Handmade is human.  Something calming about it - the process and the result.  Especially in this era: a worthy counterpoint to the digital life lived through screens.  I’ve always loved making things with my hands.  From to mosaic pots, to embroidery with a few years spent as the Playschool designer.

Theatre

Creating magical worlds in a darkened space.   I loved working with the Tamarama Rocksurfers in the Old Fitzroy Hotel and later Belvoir St.   A Clockwork Orange: dark and challenging, raw and operatic, was a pivotal project. For The Sydney Theatre Company: Away and Influence.

Digital & Branding

The digital shopfront.  The presentation of an iconic Australian story – almost an artefact now:  Picnic at Hanging Rock. How to rub off the patina of age and let the dark golden beauty of the film shine through. The strategy: Instameets, websites and DVD artwork and production.
