ABOUT

I am an emerging artist completing her Honours in print-informed fine art at RMIT, Naarm. My work explores how place, memory and experience layer and mesh, and who/what is forgotten after the war.

I served in the Australian Army for 20 years before deciding to become a full-time artist in 2019. Since then, my work has thrice been recognised in the Napier Waller Art Prize competition and I have exhibited in numerous group shows. I have my first two solo shows later this year.

Please contact me if you'd like to acquire the perfect piece of art for you!
