About —

My projects are produced on unceded Kulin Nations Country where I work and live.

I work within the mediums of video, audio, Super 8 film, photography, live and recorded performance.
 
My practice examines various representational strategies, each one linked by an interest in the body and its agency within the everyday. Recurrent themes include humour and tension between received cultural values, individual agency and free will.

I am represented by Sutton Gallery in Melbourne.
