THE PINACOTECA is a shed, a warehouse, a gallery and a plaza. It’s private and public, open and closed. Mostly though, it’s my way of developing my writing and communication skills through recording my thoughts, observations, ideas and musings on art and design, mostly in Melbourne where I live with my family. It’s not as ordered as perhaps it should be; nor does it focus on any one particular style, school or movement in art, art criticism or practice. The measures for success will be how well it and I communicate my passion for all things creative and whether it helps others to develop their artistic understanding, interests and passions, too.
I GRADUATED from art school with majors in Painting and Art History. Since then I’ve created, curated, spoken and written about art and art practice of all kinds, worked for the National Trust of Australia, the Meat Market Craft Centre and exhibited my work in solo exhibitions, group and invitation shows. I am married and live with my family in Melbourne, Australia.
