My practice encompasses painting, writing, curating and collaborating and is underpinned by the difficult exploration of the idea of landscape: how this constructs, informs and continually redefines an understanding of ourselves. I have recently held solo exhibitions at Penrith Regional Gallery, Galerie pompom, Alexandra Lawson Gallery and Broken Hill Regional Gallery. In 2017 I was professionally mentored by the Director of Penrith Regional Gallery, Dr Lee-Anne Hall, through the process of co-curating 'Landing Points: Race, Place and Identity'. This year I will exhibit work in the Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize at the National Art School, nominated by established artist Tim Johnson; hold a solo exhibition at Galerie pompom; and work towards the touring exhibition 'Legacy: Reflections on Mabo', co-curated by Gail Mabo and Jonathan McBurnie, launching in 2019.
