Judge: Lesley Kane

Layers of memories, drawings and texture inform my art practice. I'm fortunate to live on the Queensland coast and I continue to explore it each day. 

My local environment is the inspiration for my artwork, and the stimulant for experimenting with all things creative - including painting, drawing, environmental sculpture, printmaking, craft, teaching, mentoring.
