Biography

After training as a weaver in the USA, I returned to Australia in 1977 and subsequently established a production weaving workshop in Sydney in 1979 where I trained apprentices in my studio. In the early 80's, I established the Barr Street Weavers in Sydney and also worked as a community artist training rural and urban educators working in out of school centres, travelling extensively around NSW. 

From 1983 – 2003 I taught visual arts in the Faculty of Creative Arts at the University of Wollongong.
