Biography

Inspired by the immediate environment of Brisbane my practice focuses on minute areas of native flora. From these observations through a strong print aesthetic I create a diverse range of organic patterns and forms. The physicality of carving linocut not only allows me to realise these artworks it also has revealed a connection to my Torres Strait Islander heritage.

I have graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2017 at the Queensland College of Art majoring in Interdisciplinary Print Media. I continue to build my body of work with a focus on Torres Strait Islander printmaking techniques and storytelling aesthetic. I am eager to engage with Western and Non-Western print communities as a way to merge these two influential parts of my life.
