Bridgette Minuzzo has a Degree in Ceramic Design, a Diploma in Community Cultural Development and an Honours Degree in Sculpture. Two years employment working on the SA Museum of Natural History’s Biodiversity Gallery reinforced a lifelong interest in South Australian flora and fauna.

Bridgette has worked on art projects with schools for the past 14 years, predominantly painted murals and mosaics. She works closely with the students and staff to create large scale artworks, which generate a sense of place, bringing the students’ creative expression outside the classroom, into the wider school environment. With the experience of many successful public art commissions from Local Councils, Bridgette has the skills and knowledge to design work in a variety of media for public places.

Belinda Robertson, 2011 Education and Arts Ministers' Award recipient and Arts Coordinator, Allenby Gardens Primary School describes a recent project, The Learning Tree:

This is the largest, most amazing installation project I have been involved in. It would not have been successful without Bridgette's creative ideas, high level of organisation, great people skills, strong skills in large installations and dedication to ensure the project was of high quality and to the time line.

Recent installation work has led to school art projects using reclaimed materials and of a temporary nature, intended to be in the school environment or gardens for one or two years.
