Recent Work

The inspiration for this series (commenced in 2021) came from Baigup Wetlands. Baigup is sacred to the Whadjuk Noongar people and one of the few remaining wetlands in Perth, providing an important sanctuary for numerous species of birds and reptiles. The remnant paperbarks, sedges and flooded gums are wonderfully evocative embodying uncanny shadow and light. Baigup possesses a haunting beauty and timelessness, compelling me to pause and reflect on all that we have and all that we stand to lose. Click on an image for details.

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 Islanders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
