Embracing ways of thinking/knowing and making that are tentacular and open-ended, my practice explores the potential for new ways of being and becoming-with that are both generous and generative. It is informed by an understanding of ecological symbiosis and entangled with questions of connection, care and responsibility, and a deep love of the natural world.

Methodologies of collage and assemblage are intrinsic, both for their enduring relationship to feminist practice, and the space they hold for uncertainty, intuition and happenstance.  Making kin with materials also speaks to the interdependence and agency of more-than human beings, including the very stuff of our world, in our complex and ongoing stories.

I live and work on the lands of the Boonwurrung and Wurundjeri people of the Eastern Kulin nation, and pay my respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
