I am a registered teacher (BA, BSc, Grad Dip Art Education) and I hold a current Blue Card.

I have been teaching calligraphy, book arts and paper craft for craft guilds, community groups and in TAFE colleges and schools throughout Queensland for over thirty years.

My work has been exhibited, published and sold in Queensland, interstate and overseas.  


As a registered teacher, I understand how to structure information and techniques in an easy-to-follow, hands-on manner.

I provide comprehensive notes to accompany most classes.


Classes, Workshops and Residencies include:

  • Artist Books
  • Calligraphy
  • Designing with Letters
  • Cards
  • Boxes
  • Paper Decorating
  • Paper Marbling
  • Paper Making
  • Handwriting

Costs of classes

if you enrol in a group class, prices vary from $20 to $200 depending on the length of the class and the venue.

If you wish to organise your own classes, I charge $70 (AU) per hour or $200 (AU) per half day or $400 (AU) per full day.
There may be additional costs of materials for students, and also travelling expenses.
