Based in: Melbourne
I was born in the UK. I settled in Australia in 2005 after spending the previous 17 years moving internationally many times. My life has been a patchwork of cultures and this plays out in my desire to deconstruct my work.
I work with dried paint finding it far more interesting in this state than when wet. I create works specifically to cut them up. I exploit the flexibility inherent in the dried material though layering and weaving. The relationship between paint and canvas is the driving force in my art practice. I aim to surprise the viewer and generate conversation about the nature of painting.
I have been a full-time artist for many years gaining international recognition for my work in mosaic art and my authorship of the book Sculptural Secrets for Mosaic (Schiffer Publishing, USA). I have been selected as a Finalist for three Art Prizes in the last 12 months. My artworks are held in private collections in Australia, the UK, the USA, Sweden, Austria and Canada. I hold a BFA (Sculpture and Painting) from Curtin University, Perth.
I currently live and work in Melbourne.
The desire to challenge the notion that a painting is a wet substance applied to a support
My work is very process based. I am passionate about paint as a material and as such I am continually experimenting with ways in which to create with it when it is dry.
unique, thought provoking, different

Inspiration is in continual testing to see what paint is capable of and what I can create with it
