I was recently fortunate enough to be awarded one of the two Ian Reed Foundation 2012 Writers-In-Residence fellowships, for writers who have not previously written for radio. In addition to creating a work for potential broadcast, this will give me the opportunity to observe work on other productions and to collaborate with ABC Radio National’s award-winning sound engineers and drama producers. Very exciting!

I am also enjoying working with the residents and staff at Lincoln College to design and paint a mural that incorporates the College’s history, spirit and international nature, as part of their Jubilee celebrations.

Other current projects include a new series of lino prints for a hotel in Luang Prabang in Laos, the land of a million elephants. For an elephantophile like me, it’s almost the perfect brief.
