Lives and works


I was born and grew up on Whadjuk Nyoongar Country, Western Australia. For many years I
worked overseas as an international development worker. I now live on Gadubanud Country on
Victoria’s Surf Coast.
My practice combines printmaking, photography and advocacy. I’m drawn to intaglio printmaking
techniques, particularly multiple plate etching. The marks and irregularity that can be created
through corroding lines and surfaces, and the tonal delicacy of layering thin veils of colour are a
focus. My work experiments with light by varying how plate surfaces hold ink through graining and
creating tooth – a meditative process.
