My current practice involves making drawings in pen and embroidery thread exploring the relationship between people and the natural world, technology and science. Many of the issues and concepts I explore have their origins in my own experience of place. Much of my work uses elements of my home state of Southeast Queensland, such as flora, fauna and architecture.
A love of natural history illustration led me to undertake a Bachelor of Visual Art majoring in illustration at Queensland College of Art. Following this I studied Painting as a Graduate Diploma at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
Having been involved in the family antique and secondhand business for the last 20 years I have always been fascinated how objects are interpreted. This has become part of my visual language and an integral element in the development of concepts for my work.
As part of my Endangered project I started drawing frequently at the Queensland Museum this and my love of antiques and natural history has led me to studying postgraduate coursework in Museum Studies at the University of Queensland. (2017).
