Artist Biography


I am a Tasmanian artist and graduate of the Tasmanian School of Creative Arts, University of Tasmania.

I create large scale photographs, with a focus on portraits, to evoke an immersive, intimate environment.

I am dealing with issues that I directly face in my own life, and the work is developed inside my real-life environment, and circumstances. My work explores the threshold and tenuous grip we have on life, dealing with the tensions of shifting self-identity and loss of place.

I am exploring an innovative approach that mixes cinematic lighting with real-world environments. I take my photographs outdoors, in the elements of nature, through this I aim to further evoke the fragility of our existence, and the ephemerality of light and day.

I employ ambiguity, working with an implied narrative across a series of images that is activated through the relationships that emerge between the images. Gaps become meaningful therefore what is hidden is just as important as what is shown.
