I am currently Director of Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery and Museum. I have worked in the arts and cultural industry for over 12 years and believe that when well interpreted and exhibited, material culture immeasurably enriches our understanding of the past.  I published my PhD with Berg Press, London, as Bound to Please: A History of the Victorian Corset. My current research involves the Crinoline in Australia. I regularly present seminars on Dress, the body and sexuality. As a costume historian I am particularly interested in regional collections of Dress and textiles. My broad interest in social history collections means that I enjoy working with a diverse range of artefacts to create solutions for both public and private collections.
