Biography


Throughout her life, both art & science have been hugely influential for Nari. Growing up on land, in regional & remote Western Australia, she has a deep reverence for nature & the cycles of living & dying. Choosing to become an Occupational Therapist she has searched for best ways of being with others through their periods of deep & seemingly impossible challenge, while also honourably dealing with her own life transitions. She is passionate about the ways that these often painful times of transition become opportunities for growth & healing, through deeper relationship, with both the self and other. We can rediscover our humanness, grow our creative capacities, & truly change & heal our lives.
 
In her 50's now, Nari continues to balance working alongside individuals & groups in becoming more creative & art-full in their lives, while practicing her contemplative art. She has over the last 6 years, stepped more out of her studio & co-created & facilitated with colleagues & community leaders, a public meditative & healing place in Western Australia - Bunbury Garden Labyrinth. With Nari serving for a time as Chairperson & twice as Secretary, the successful project was recently nominated for the City of Bunbury Australia Day Citizen of the Year Awards, in the Community Groups/Events category. Nari continues to enjoy the challenges of balancing solitary time with engagement in community work.
 
She is well aware how artworks have the potential to transform spaces. The environments in which we live and work have the power to shape how we feel, think and construct reality. Further to this, especially at times of transition, when we are rendered incapable of expressing the ineffable, an artwork can often convey something beyond the words and the obvious.
