I studied atAdelaide Central School of Art working with discarded and outmoded materials ofthe everyday, making audiences re-think relationships with familiar ready-madeobjects and their associated sensory/haptic memories.

Biography

I workpredominantly in sculpture and installation, responding to observations ofpeople, objects, and materiality. I seek to prove that the unwanted is in factuseful and that it might prompt us to rethink our relationship with it.Respecting the life and qualities of the material, my aim is to workcollaboratively with material agency to activate it in some way.
