Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, grew up in Melbourne, Australia.
Completed a BA. in Fine Art (photography) at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) during the mid to late nineties. When there was a lot of controversy around Dolly the sheep, the first genetically engineered animal. Planting the seeds for the future of biotechnology. My graduation installation received an offer for representation, from a London marketer opening a gallery in Melbourne. “After considerable thought, I said no!”
At the time, did not see a lot of support in the field of art and diverged into Design. Completing a BA. in Design (Interior design) at Swinburne University of Technology. Art and Interior architecture evolved into fluid understanding the relationship between spatial constructionism and the human body and psyche. Now, there is far greater multidisciplinary collaboration and optimism about the important role of an artist/art in play in speculating the future of science and technology.
