I am an Australian artist and creativity / life coach currently living near Frankfurt in Germany. This site is an introduction to my art in its various forms, an outline of  my coaching approach for potential clients, and ideally, an opportunity to add something positive to the day of those who visit. 

I was born in Sydney in 1967 and grew up in some extraordinary locations including the desert, the country and finally back in the city. Living in Sydney's diverse and cosmopolitan inner west, I have long been fascinated by the experience of those who found themselves in a new country and culture, and now this very complex experience is my own reality.

University studies in psychology led to an intense and satisfying career in dementia management and community care of the elderly. 20 years ago however, I made a major change in focus to undertake postgraduate study at the University of Sydney and work in the exciting field of Coaching Psychology,  primarily with clients who want to explore creative ways to make their personal and professional experiences more satisfying.   Now, while trying to win the ongoing battle with German grammar, I also have the opportunity to make a lot more art myself!

Why art and coaching?
It may seem strange to present information about coaching and my personal art on one site. However, while my coaching practice is founded in evidence-based, scientific models and high professional standards and is undertaken following strict Codes of Ethics, coaching is, at its best, an extraordinary experience of creativity for both client and coach. I am passionate about both creating art and creative coaching, and so value the sense of integrity that comes from allowing these two aspects of my work to stand side by side. I am convinced that my coaching skills could benefit other artists and creative people in enhancing their lives, melding skills and creativity from art practise into other parts of life, and vice versa.

 I would also love to expand my community of friends and collaborators, near and far, through art and through language, so welcome any comments, questions or conversations.
