My art practice is often hard to define as the materials I use vary from project to project. My work includes oil paintings, installation three-dimensional pieces and new media; whatever medium or method works with the idea.

I currently live and work in Sydney and have a studio in Paddington as part of the Woollahra Council Artist in Residency program. As an undergraduate I received the GS Caird Scholarship for Fine Art (Theory) from Sydney University before moving on to study painting and drawing at the National Art School. In 2000 I completed a Masters of Fine Arts in painting at RMIT in Melbourne.

I have been part of over thirty group shows in New York, Japan, London, Sydney and Melbourne. My first group exhibition was of sculptures and drawings as part of Artexpress at the Art Gallery of NSW.

In November 2012 I undertook a Bathurst Regional Gallery residency at Haefliger’s Cottage in Hill End. More recently I was part of Cementa_13, a contemporary arts festival set in the rural industrial town of Kandos NSW.
