About

 

I am a Sydney based artist, writer, curator and art director. As an artist I enjoy creating work using natural materials and printmaking techniques that force me to surrender. I am drawn to the unpredictable.

Art making provides me an opportunity to play with materials, techniques and ideas that spark my curiosity. My current body of work is inspired by fairytales, wild woodlands and plant dyeing.

 

Using the technique of plant dyeing, I collect and boil eucalyptus leaves. I place pieces of folded, wrapped and tied paper into the boiling pot, and wait for the leaves to make their mark. After removing the paper from the pot, I respond to the array of random, unpredictable marks left embedded on the paper by the leaves.
