Working with an inter-disciplinary approach to my arts practice, I cross between installation, performance and collaboration, yet my underlying method is always drawing. I love to use process driven, laborious techniques - like cyanotype - and experiment with a variety of up-cycled textiles.


My motivation to make work comes from a curiosity about the human condition. I find our mere existence just so absurd at times. The expectations, performed duties, constructed narratives, cultural stigmas… I wrestle with trying to fit them… to understand why they are so and question if they need to exist.

I am based in Meanjin/Brisbane, Australia.
