I am an Artist and Designer currently living and working in the vibrant city of Sydney. My journey began in a quaint small-town setting, but my pursuit of higher education led me to this bustling metropolis. I enrolled at UNSW Art & Design, where I dedicated myself to the study of Design and Art Education, eventually graduating with Honours in 2015.
Halfway through my university journey, a life-altering accident occurred, resulting in a spinal cord injury. These physical changes made me reassess both my approach to life and my art.
After my accident, taking back control of my life meant rediscovering my identity as an artist. At first this was difficult and a little bit frustrating as I have limited movement in my arms and fingers. I experimented with a range of different mediums and styles. One style I discovered is the stippling technique. The stippling technique has become an important part of my artistic language, as it allows me to merge precision with emotion.
As a visual artist, I also utilize various mediums, such as sculpture, drawing, painting, and video. I often explore themes of beauty and suffering. My work often revolves around the delicate balance between these contrasting concepts. I use a vivid colour palette to depict darker subject matter, deliberately juxtaposing colour and content to challenge the audience's perception of beauty.
