I am a practicing artist living at Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. I have a love of creating and often have a number of projects on the go at any one time.
In 2016 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, drawing, painting, printing and film.
Today, my art practice 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, 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 illusive urban artist and social commentator, and
Maurits Escher, whose mathematical art is a triumph in repetition, geometry, perspective, reflection. symmetry, tessellation, light and shade.
