Recent Work & Awards

My work is process driven, centring around the exploration of the monoprint and palimpsest landscape as evocation. Monoprinting is ideally suited to this deliberate overwriting of images, with each layer simultaneously creating and denying form. There is something very seductive about the potential for serendipitous mark making. This process is integral to both the aesthetics and meaning of the work - it speaks of memory, time, loss and renewal.

There is deliberate oscillation between marks on paper and spatial illusion reflecting the intersection of nature, abstraction and lived experience. Hover over image for details, click for slide show.

I acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land where I work and live, the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation, and pay my respects to Elders past, present, and emerging. I celebrate the continuing culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of all communities who also work and live on this land.
