I have spent my
working life as both a film maker and an artist. For many years I lived in
Canada, away from my native Australia, making prize winning documentaries at
the National Film Board of Canada.
I had won a Fulbright scholarship to study media at Stanford and from there went to the NFB, staying 30 years in Montreal.
I also made family feature films with producer, Rock Demers, writing and directing Tommy Tricker and the Stamp Traveller, and Vincent and Me which won an Emmy.
Since returning to Australian in 1996, I've worked for the ABC and as a freelance film maker. In the last five years, I've become an activist for bikes as transport, making many films which are on youtube. I have a blog dedicated to this work, www.situp-cycle.com
This last year I've been using the power of art to
make works on paper, bicycle art, to enhance the status of the sit-up
My bicycle art includes rubbings, lino cuts and solar prints, all celebrating the charm and beauty of cycling.
I've recently had an exhibition of my bicycle art at the Tap Gallery and now have a web site devoted to bicycle art, http://situp-bike-art.com
