I was born in Melbourne, Australia 1980 and completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts at The University of Melbourne, Victorian College of the Arts, in 2002. After ten years working as a photographer in London, I returned to Australia and completed a Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2017.
Through my practice I explore the disruptive power of female life as it jostles with the man-made. Camille Paglia says, “Society is an artificial construction, a defense against nature’s power”. It is this power that interests me. Societal organisations such as religion, medicine and politics are the stage upon which I reveal the chaos, dynamism, and edge of femaleness.
My works tend to have a participatory element, and span photography, film, installation and sculpture.
