As an emerging artist based in Meanjin / Brisbane, my practice expands from traditional foundations of drawing and painting into contemporary, interdisciplinary art practice. My art is influenced by the unique natural beauty of this country, but is also informed by the history of colonisation, its ongoing impact on Indigenous communities and environmental degradation.

I believe that art has the ability to inspire awareness, to build community, and to effect real change. In my work, I aim to explore my feelings for the natural world while also acknowledging the complex social and cultural history that has shaped perceptions of it. As a non-Indigenous artist, I recognize the importance of acknowledging and respecting the sovereignty of Indigenous peoples and their ongoing connection to this land. I am committed to engaging in ongoing learning and dialogue to better understand the complex histories and cultures of this place.

​My practice is driven by intuitive process. I constantly experiment with directly emotive mark making and tactile methods in order to push the boundaries of traditional representation. I explore installation art as a method of escaping the confines of the wall and challenge ways viewers perceive art. The process of making offers me a form of deep inquiry and is a compelling tool for seeking a better understanding of the world around us. Through my art, I aim to prompt open conversation and reflection on ways we can work towards a more just and sustainable present and future together.

Examining the past, present and future through the eyes and hands of 15 Australian artists who are respectfully navigating their way through the politics and sociologies of a culturally diverse society. Inspired by Susan Best’s 2015 article “Anger and Repair: The Art and Politics of Judy Watson’s Holes in the Land”, which explores reparative aesthetics, these First-Nation, multicultural, and Anglo heritage Australian artists communicating their idea of a better Australia.



Unravel, Solo Exhibition, Webb Gallery, QCA Galleries, South Brisbane, 28 April–8 May.
Investigating creative research into how non-Indigenous contemporary artists can be informed by decolonisation methodologies. This exhibition encouraged conversation through an open and emotively responsive approach to challenging problematic mindsets inherent to post-colonial conventions of non-Indigenous landscape art. While my practice originated from these challenging traditions, this project aimed to question these trappings and expand into a regenerative art practice.
