About

I am an artist and researcher based in Berlin. 

In my studio, I work intuitively to produce artefacts that are personally meaningful and allow a deeper understanding of creative processes. I turn my insights into transformative experiences that involve alternative pedagogical methods. In 2017 I began working on a radical pedagogy project to explore creativity through the lens of plants and in 2018 I co-founded the Perennial Institute.

I enjoy working with others to expand their creativity and have taught art and design students at Sydney College of the Arts (USYD) and the University of Technology, Sydney. While in Berlin, I have worked with Haegue Yang and created education products for Olafur Elliason’s Little Sun project.

I was awarded a PhD by the University of Sydney for my artistic research on light and photography. In 2014 I.B Tauris published a portion of my research as Light and Photomedia a book which features a techno-historical analysis of photography and a future forecast of its impact on creativity and perception.

During my career I've received several prestigious awards and grants; most notably the Australian Postgraduate Award, Australia Council New Work (Early Career) grant, the NAVA Artist grant and the Art Gallery New South Wales CitĂ© International des Arts residency, in Paris. I have exhibited my art in Australia, Japan, the USA and across Europe.
