Notes

A note from me about me. I was born into the theatre. My dad George was a Theatre Director and Actor. I grew up at the feet of Great Works, great Acting and Actors and Great productions. I watched it all, I memorized it and I replicated it over and over again in the lounge room on our shag pile rug. The Artistry of Acting captured me, and it’s magic seeped into every pore of my being. I am fascinated and amazed by the power of creativity and the collaboration upon a single idea to present a work filled with truth, integrity, insight, love and transformation. How could I not want to spend my life dedicated to this fine Art form! Awards AFI Nomination for Best Actress, Poor Man’s Orange, Harp in the South, Belinda. Green Room Award for Outstanding Director – Melbourne Fringe
