My ink drawings are often inspired by compassion, nature and my experience with yoga and meditation, and dedicated to the importance of self love and emotional wellbeing. It aims to evoke a sense of kindness and mindfulness with the occasional pinch of humour. While at first glance my work may appear delicate with a sense of fragility, it is usually underpinned by layers of symbolism and depth.
My collages are inspired by the work of Kurt Schwitters, Eduardo Paolozzi, and Hannah Höch. The integration of recurrent themes such as femininity, pin-up glamour, and humour portray surreal scenes through the careful juxtaposition of recycled images, mixed media, and text from vintage books. My intention for each individual work is to encapsulate the essence of surrealism by integrating vintage style fragments and forms to portray a dreamlike story.
I acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land that I live, love and work upon, and their connections to land, sea, community and culture. I offer my deepest respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and extend this respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
