I am a practising artist living at Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.  I have a love of creating and materials and often have several projects on the go at any one time.  My studio practice is dynamic and always changing.  


In 2016 I completed a Bachelor of Art majoring in Fine Art and Visual Culture from Curtin University in Western Australia. I graduated with high distinction as well as gaining a place on the Curtin University's Vice Chancellor's list. My thesis discussed the giant Satinay trees found on Fraser Island. I examined the dendrochronology of these ancient trees through sculpture, paper making, drawing, painting, printing, and film. 


Today, my art practise is multi-disciplinary and usually in series and includes work with a strong design element highlighting the use of colour, light, shade, tone, and value as well as abstract works based on my emotional response to nature and the environment.  I also experiment in sculptural works in clay, and occasionally I delve into portraiture in the style of Banksy. 


I usually have a crafty project or two on the go such as woodwork, jewellery, soap making, and paper-making.  My studio practice uses eco-friendly methodologies, I use non-toxic, recycled, reclaimed, and sustainable materials where possible.


My influences are:

  • Thancoupie, an indigenous sculptor and ceramic artist,

  • Banksy, the elusive urban artist, and social commentator, and

  • Maurits Escher, whose mathematical art is a triumph in repetition, geometry, perspective, reflection. symmetry, tessellation, light, and shade.
