About

I was born in Kent, England and live in Melbourne where I have spent most of my life. I have also resided in London and Perth. I began my art career after bringing up my three children and make my work from a studio at home. I completed a Masters of Fine Art at Monash University in 2018 and have a Bachelor of Fine Art (Visual Art) Honours from the Victorian College of the Arts, 2013. I also have qualifications in Interior Design and Decoration. 

My work is informed by a diverse range of interests, including interior design, architecture, the domestic and crafts, and the stories of women whose work has been marginalised or erased from these important histories. The construction of my work and materials used include welded steel, woodworking, plaster and concrete casting. I consider these self taught skills as a part of a feminist methodology for making work. 

I have received several awards and have participated in many exhibitions, including public art works. Achievements include being being presented with the Palazzi MFA Award as first prize for my MFA grad show installation at Monash University, 2018, being selected as a finalist for The Churchie at the QUT Art Museum, Brisbane for 2016, being awarded Most Critically Engaged Work by the Australian Centre for Photography for Salon, Centre for Contemporary Photography in 2015 and being selected for Fresh, at Craft Victoria in 2014.
