I explore identity, the notion of family and the journey of becoming whole.
I am enamored with religious art and motifs. By narrative. By captured moments. I am motivated by death. Obsessed by the transience of life, and ephemeral nature of beauty in humans.
I was born and raised on the Mornington Peninsula, but now live in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I travel frequently for inspiration.
In 2008, I studied Printing & Graphic Arts at RMIT TAFE which led to a job in graphic design with a landscape company. This only seemed to reinforce my suspicion that I was not comfortable in an office environment.
So in 2010 I dove headfirst into a 2 year Diploma of Visual Arts with Chisholm TAFE. It was this experience, with the amazing teachers I had, that eventually sealed my artistic fate. But not right away… In 2015 while living in NYC I finally decided to take it seriously.
In 2016 I did an acrylics short course with John Parks while in NYC.
2018 I did a course in mixed media with Adam Scott Miller & Chris Dyer.
In 2019 short courses with Luis Tamani, Michael Fuchs, Daniel Mirante, Kevin Campeau & Olga Klimova.
