Her artwork and writing have been published in numerous magazines, journals and newspapers in Australia and abroad. With several art awards to her name, Maire-Claire has been exhibited in many shows here and overseas. Her artwork has also been featured in a series of calendars for an international company and licensed for reproduction on a home décor line in New Zealand.


Influenced by a childhood divided between Sydney and a vineyard in the Upper Hunter Valley the nuances of nature are layered throughout Marie-Claire's work. As an award-winning artist Marie-Claire is also focused on projects that meld both her writing and her art. These include illustrated poetry collections, and a book on vulnerable to endangered species, combining her writing/art with those of respected scientists and notable persons around the world.


Marie-Claire can often be found at three in the morning dashing down words that won’t let her rest till captured; or dripping wet scribbling on a scrap of paper when the muse distracts her from a shower. Her family well know the creativity that leaves the washing up half-done and the oil pencils vying for space with the stack of handwritten notes on her desk.


The photography shown here is from a verse novel in progress focusing on how the drought, fires, floods and pandemic have affected the rural community. Photos were taken on an android mobile or Canon camera.
