  • consultation on new computer and computer peripheral purchases

the paper lady

In the summer, when not doing computer work (or as a break from computing) Marlene makes handmade paper. The paper is used for other artistic projects and used to back many of her visual art projects, including the making of unusual pendants and 3D sculptures.


As an established technical writer and publisher, Marlene is often called upon to edit or review professional writing projects, to manage and assist with writing projects from inception through to final publishing. She has worked with authors, musicians, publishers, graduate students providing editing, review, cover development, pre-press layup and print services. She often provides APA editing services for master and doctorate thesis candidates, assisting with referencing research and developing table of contents, appendices, indices, reports, as required.

the lady with the camera

Marlene is always the one behind the camera or video equipment, playing with angles, capturing the “right moments,” the right light. She believes that natural light makes for a superior image and will often stand in wait until natural light is just right. She explores unusual reflective surfaces to play with light.

She has photographed authors for the back cover of their books and has her photography used in the creation of front covers. Not a studio photographer, she prefers the statements of the more familiar environment for her subject/s. She is after natural actions and reactions, or poses that reflect a subject’s personality, aiming to capture the looks that disappear far too quickly when a person realizes they are being photographed. She believes the photographer, not the subject, should be doing the bulk of the work in the production of the photographic image.
