About

I am a practicing visual artist trained in printmaking in both Australia and the United States, currently residing in Brisbane, Australia. I completed a Bachelor of Fine Art with the Queensland College of Art in 2012, and attended the Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, USA to complete a summer workshop in aluminium plate lithography. My work has been exhibited in Australia and America; and I currently have work in collections at the State Library of Queensland, Griffith Artworks, QCA Printmaking Department, Northern Prints Gallery (Duluth, USA), The Skopelos Foundation for the Arts (Greece), and private collections in the UK, USA, South Africa and Australia. I am also co-director of Grey Hand Press, a publishing studio based in Brisbane.

My practice uses the manipulation of printmaking and drawing mediums through a detailed exploration of material and mark making. Containing multiple references to landscape, my work explores notions of nostalgia through personal familiarity to natural environments. With a focus on local content, the imagery within my work ranges from expressive landscapes, to macro-vision representations of surface textures and detail. I work primarily in the printmaking medium of lithography — both traditional (stone and aluminium) and explorative (polyplate and mokulito), whose direct image-making process allows for a more intimate rapport between hand and surface and great spontaneity in the way a drawing can be produced.
