A u s t r a l i a n     a r t i s t


Inspired by material and place, and informed by nature, I focus on the object itself and its inherent materiality by evoking organic morphologies. Projecting a calm acceptance of impermanence, instability and transience, each work is a response to our relationship with the natural environment. My work occupies  liminal zones where material, place, space and memory come together.
