// BIO

I am a multidisciplinary artist working across a diverse range of media including painting, photography, installation and video. Based in Melbourne, Australia I completed the Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2015. My work “Things Slowly Curve out of Sight” was exhibited as part of the Masters Graduation Exhibition. Recent Exhibitions include "Careless Whisper" at C3 Contemporary Artspace and “The Lady and her Dog” at Seventh Gallery.

Foremost my art practice is about making, I make as much as I can and I make what I like with intention. The principle of colour, form, surface, and composition are at the core of my work.  My work is deliberately anti-political, searching for a slower way of life and seductive simplicity.

I source and collect a wide range of imagery, symbols of beauty and femininity  – flowers, kittens, puppies, landscapes, motifs that tap into universal nostalgia, connection and emotion. A sickly sweet candy land that engages with mythology, craft, creative process and the digital cultural experience to bring together seemingly disparate ideas and references to create seemingly random, yet playful works.
