I am Adelaide-based contemporary sculpture and installation artist. My practice is motivated by the curious complexity of found objects and common materials: both natural and human-made. I believe found objects have the capacity to open up dialogues, and reveal something of the relationships between artist, artefact, and viewer. Whilst often motivated by intuitive investigation and autobiographical narrative I intend for my work to be subjective and open to the viewer’s interpretation, and also able to voice broader social concerns.

I have recently completed a Masters by Research (Major Studio Project) at the University of South Australia, supported by the MF & MH Joyner Scholarship in Fine Arts. In 2007 I graduated with First Class Honours (Bachelor of Visual Arts) from the South Australian School of Art. I have received a number of commendations for my work, including the Qantas Foundation Encouragement of Australian Contemporary Art Award (2012), the Ruth Tuck Scholarship (2010), and the Constance Gordon-Johnson Sculpture and Installation Prize (2008).

I have exhibited my work locally, interstate and internationally, and have participated in residencies, workshops and mentorships within Australia, Italy, America, and the UK. Solo exhibitions include Turn back to the river (part of the 2013 national One River Project at Murray Bridge and Lake Ginninderra, Canberra), and After you’ve gone (Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia’s Project Space, 2008). Group exhibitions include Same River Twice (Australian Experimental Art Foundation and Murray Bridge Regional Gallery, 2014), Provisional State I (Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia, 2013), Show seventeen (Shift Gallery, London, 2010), and the Hatched National Graduate Show (Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, 2008).

Publications featuring my work include Belonging: Great Art Stories From Regional Australia (2014), FELTspace GOLD: A Survey of Emerging Contemporary Art Practice in South Australia (2011), and the premiere edition of the national art magazine, Art World (2008).
