I am an environmental artist exploring the connections surrounding human impact on islands and isolated environments. Examining through immersive residencies as artist/tourist, traveller, observer, my aim is to look beyond the travel guide rhetoric to create artworks and installations examining the impact of the Anthropocene and consumerism on the utopian destination. I completed a Master of Fine Art (2016) and a Master of Contemporary Art (2014) degrees at Sydney College of the Arts - University of Sydney Australia.
I work tirelessly to disseminate the research and resulting artworks in exhibitions and at conferences internationally and in Australia. I was recently invited to speak at the Royal Society of NSW in a talk titled: ‘Antarctica: This Ain’t No Mirage - the value of art in disseminating scientific information’
This year 2022 I have won the Greenway Art Prize; I exhibited my environmentally based artworks as an ‘artist at large’ in a solo exhibition at the NRCG (Northern Rivers Community Gallery), been selected group exhibitions internationally; Ancestral Echoes: A Decade of Bio Art SVA New York and the Nautilus Oceans Exhibition at the Explorers Club New York; included in Australian exhibitions such as, the Heysen Landscape Prize, SWELL Sculpture, Wyndham Prize, The Alice Prize, North Queensland Ceramic Biennale and North Sydney Art Prize.
My research has been published in peer reviewed journals and a book, I have been invited to deliver formal lectures and over 23 papers at conferences around the globe.
