As an artist and arts worker based in Canberra, I am interested in how we are shaped subconsciously by the spaces around us and what is and isn't memorialised.

My art practice has included several large-scale permanent and ephemeral public art commissions. These works have all reflected unique, site-specific aspects of rural and urban environments. Recent works experiment with finding new ways to engage people in place-making activities.

My interest in public art and audiences has influenced my approach to event management. I have produced a number of large-scale events and festival installations. These installations have involved the audience as part of the act of composition or design.

I have over twenty years experience working in public programs areas in the Galleries, Libraries and Museum (GLAM) sector. Over this period I have developed and implemented leading onsite, online and outreach interpretation programs for the sector.
