and study in India and Asia have acted as a catalyst in the

reflects the artist's creative process between gesture, voice,
colour, sound, intensity and light. From the earlier sculptural
paintings on jute of the 1985 Myth, Woman, Song series,

final Townsville exhibitions before moving to the Unites Sates
to continue her work.
