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.
I utilise the manipulation of printmaking and drawing mediums through a detailed exploration of material and mark-making in order to reflect my direct responses to my environment. This is explored through a portfolio of imagery ranging from expressive landscapes and portraits, to macro-vision images of surface texture and detail. I work primarily in the printmaking medium of lithography, whose direct image-making process allows not only for a more intimate rapport between hand and surface, but also a great spontaneity in the way a drawing can be produced.
