My visual art practice involves work in charcoal, pen, watercolour, acrylic, oil and organic materials, in response with my body to interior/exterior spaces I exist in and travel to. Work as a musician informs my practice in relation to exploring languages that connect our inner and out worlds.
I am an interdisciplinary artist from Allora Queensland, currently based in Meanjin/Brisbane. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Honours at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University. I completed a printmaking internship at QCA. And have worked a as an Art Tutor at Qld TAFE, and Music Teacher at The Australian Academy of Music. Residencies include The Booringa Fire & Water Festival 2019 and Naidoc Week 2018 - Ngulalma ngalinda because of her we can, that took place on Gunggari/Mitchel country, 2018. I completed a two week residency at the University of Hawaii where a series of lithographs were completed. I also practice as a musician as a singer-songwriter, releasing second album, Desire Notes on vinyl this year. A project that also involves my visual concepts.
