  • Artist’s Statement

    I seek to reconcile my experiences as military veteran and artist by producing art that builds empathy and generates discussion on our nations involvement in war. I achieve this through a multidisciplinary art practice that encourages participation and the generation of experience.

  • Biography

    Voices of Veterans events are a lightning rod for veteran and mental health awareness. They aim to bring communities together and engage them. During Voices of Veterans art exhibitions, art workshops and small events may be offered. Please contact us to collaborate to help deliver events as they are only possible with support.

    The artworks have been featured in art events, special receptions and festivals around Australia. These include the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2022, Australian Military Medical Association (AMMA) Conference in Melbourne, March to Art: VOICE at Australian National Veterans Art Museum (ANVAM) Exhibition in Melbourne, a UNSW Canberra Alumni networking event in Canberra and the Veteran Film Festival 2022.
