I am a photographer and video artist/ filmmaker.
I often work with portraiture, creating projects that are inspired by personal cycles or transitions in life. Portraits can provide a startling reminder that in all the chaos of life, there are still moments full of beauty, strength and presence.
I have found much inspiration being the mother of a teenager and have used portraiture to explore the changing teen parent relationship, and to celebrate the transition when a teen is ready to step out onto their path into adult life.
I have shown my portrait work at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale Open Program (2015, 2019) and was selected as a finalist in the Alice Springs Art Prize (2016) and the Olive Cotton Portrait Prize (2013).
My video art explores experiences of consciousness, connection, presence, and place. An installation at LaTrobe University Visual Arts Centre, 2015, explored the interplay of the ethereal and corporeal on a cosmological scale, and a recent theatrical installation at the Phee Broadway, as part of the Create at Home Residency 2019, explored consciousness and advanced dementia.
