BIO

I am a Sydney based artist working within the tradition of abstraction to examine relationships to self, nature and lived experience.

 

My practice spans painting, sculpture, installation and print to create works with a strong, graphic quality; with an intention to express optimism and celebration of connection.

 

My  background in social work also makes me a keen observer of people and human behaviour, and these observations influence my work.
