About >


I am a visual artist whose practice encompasses drawing, painting, performance and curatorial projects informed by the lineage of feminist and queer art and activist practices. I have a current interest in reviving the craft of hand-painted signwriting, influenced by my father’s occupation as a commercial set painter for TV and theatre.

I have been working on Gadigal land (Sydney) since the early 2000s, I was born in Naarm (Melbourne) and I am of Scottish descent. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Art from UNSW and a Masters in Visual Art from University of Sydney. I am an Alumni of the Australia Council Arts Leaders Program (2016) and a founding member of artist collective Barbara Cleveland.
I am currently a resident of the NSW Creative Industry Residency Program at the Powerhouse. Most recently I have exhibited in Unfinished Business: Perspectives on art and feminism at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (Melbourne), Thinking Business at Goulburn Regional Art Gallery, MUMA’s Art You Can Wear project and created a collection for the NGV Design Store. My works are held in various collections including the Sheila Foundation, Artbank, Museum of Contemporary Art and the Art Gallery of NSW.
