I acknowledge the muwinina people as the traditional owners & continual custodians of the land on which I live & work & I pay my deepest respect to all elders - past, present & emerging.

I am a multidisciplinary artist & community development worker based in nipaluna/Hobart, lutruwita/Tasmania.

I have a background in comparative literary studies & so (along with being an avid reader & general nerd) my creative process often engages with theoretical & philosophical frameworks. The bulk of my work draws on intersectional feminist theories surrounding body, identity & gender politics, as well as lived experience, with the aim to contribute to discussions & understandings about perceptions of femininity/masculinity, cultural heritage & the importance of agency in self representation.

I also have a collaborative practice with Tilley Wood which is based in performance and installation art.
