I am a mixed media artist working primarily with sculpture, photography and painting. My practice draws on theories of abstraction, phenomenology and entropy. I am very interested in the remnants of daily life that are often left behind and overlooked. Finding beauty in the marks and layers of lives lived and areas and objects that are often the subject of negative perceptions eg. detritus, peeling paint and rust is what interests me. I paint, photograph and sculpt using influences from the ever changing urban landscape that slowly sprawls onwards.

Having grown up in the outer-suburbs of Melbourne I also have an interest in the beauty and diversity of nature. Gardens full of flowers hold so many opportunities. Recently I have chosen to diversify my artistic endeavors and have decided to start designing clothing and stickers. My designs are based primarily on shapes and colour.
