Born in rural Australia to parents of European migrants; my work explores a sense of place that lies somewhere between the physicality of place; and in the greater sense one of belonging. This been more inheritably is linked to culture and ones own exploration.
Throughout various forms of creativity my work follows a narrative theme, which draws upon my family’s culture and other experiences of travel. The interweaving of cultures seems to reflect through the inter layering of surfaces and mediums to create an ephemeral quality that creates both veils and foundations in which to create a form of storytelling...
Exploring mixed media painting and printmaking the artist’s imagery is translated in lyrical moments that create limitless states. These become backgrounds where figures are placed and gathered into a narrative tale. Throughout the work there lingers stillness and solitude capturing a moment of contemplation that seeks to voice some expression of an inner journey which is allows it to emerge.
Through various printmaking mediums layers are built. With thoughts and expressions, surfaces are created which interplay with transparent layers and solid foundations that link together pages to form a story.
