I am an interdisciplinary artist & creative nomad. My work is deeply connected to my love of nature and the Australian landscape. Working either while I travel or from my studio in the Byron Bay Hinterland on 25 acres of subtropical rainforest, I am always creating. I specialise in combining 21st century digital imagery with 18th and 19th century antiquarian photographic printing processes. While photography is at the heart of my arts practice and my greatest passion, my work is created by bringing varied disciplines working together mutually through notions of concept, philosophy, & process. My visual imagery work draws on the external environment and the internal experiences of the viewer, and I create with both in mind. My intent is to stimulate the imagination and internal psychological responses of my audience. This visual investigation of the subject matter seeks to engage the viewer on several levels; to prompt or challenge social collective memory and to evoke the viewers’ internal dialogue of their experience and facilitate contemplation.
I started my visual arts career as a fine art & documentary photographer and process historian/printer. My practice has since broadened to include more traditional artistic mediums such as painting.
Alongside creating contemporary digital photographic artwork, I specialise in creating hand crafted, unique state artworks, some through applying paint pigments in sensitised solutions that allow me to create reproductions of digital images in a painterly form. The result is an intersection between the material nature of these one of a kind, precious and historical articles and the ephemeral nature of the digital image in the internet age. It is through this intersection that I seek to create a pause for the viewer to see the digital world through the paradigm of a more refined, artisan and bespoke framework.
As a painter, my practice is emerging and as I continue to explore and develop my own unique expressive style. My abstract landscape paintings and style have organically evolved from my photographic practice, with the main subject matter the natural environment.
I have six degrees, including a Master of Documentary Photography, Graduate Diploma in Art History, Bachelor of Adult Education, and Master of Science in Coaching Psychology. After a successful corporate career in senior and executive leadership roles for over 26 years, I am now a leadership and development coach with an evidence based practice centred around positive psychology. I work creatively and professionally from my home and studio in the Byron Bay Hinterland rainforest, developing my arts practice and running creative photographic and mindfulness workshops and retreats.
