Artist Bio

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 ‘1919’ a painting group show at Galerie pompom, the touring exhibition 'Legacy: Reflections on Mabo', co-curated by Gail Mabo and Jonathan McBurnie, and hold a solo exhibition at Alexandra Lawson Gallery, Toowoomba.

I acknowledge the Darug Nation and people as traditional custodians of the land on which I live and work, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the First Peoples of Australia. I wish to pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and to continue to educate myself on the history of this place I live.
