I grew up in Wangi Wangi, on a peninsula jutting out into Lake Macquarie, NSW. My early life was insular and magical. I was brought up in a large creative family and attended a Steiner School. Creating art has always been a safe space for me.
My approach towards making changed into a tool for social commentary and self evolution. After beginning study at the National Art School in Sydney l quickly sought to challenge and expand my practice, aesthetically and conceptually.
I describe my work as a fluid, alternating between looking outward and inward. Naturally, my art has become a process of exposing the parallels between social issues and internal dialogues and narratives. They are paradoxically bright, "tacky" and defiant, instilling an energetic equilibrium to the weight of their subjects.
