Originally trained and working in fashion design and production, I altered course to study drawing and painting at the Julian Ashton Art School, continuing my study at the College of Fine Arts, where I majored in painting while completing a Bachelor of Fine Art degree.
While studying for my master’s degree at Sydney College of the Arts my media of choice evolved to photography and textile work. However, I feel my work still suggests a painter’s sensibility in many ways and has influenced me in working with oils yet again after a long break. Recent textile pieces range from tight, abstract and amorphic shapes with linen, to more fluid, evocative manipulations. The photographic works possess a painterly, evasive quality – like catching sight of something but not quite seeing or understanding it (much like the process of remembering).
