I am a photographic artist and teacher working at high school and tertiary level with an interest in exploring the photograph as a sculptural object, building my own cameras and experimenting with landscapes.
Winning Best Documentary Work at the Centre for Contemporary Photography (Melbourne) in 2015, I have been a finalist in numerous art prizes in Australia including the Perth Centre for Photography CLIP Awards (2016 & 2017), MAMA Art Foundation National Photography Prize (2016), Josephine Ulrick & Win Schubert Photography Award (2014), Alice Prize (2014), and the Monash Gallery of Art Bowness Prize (2010). Internationally, I have been shortlisted in various exhibitions including the Royal Photographic Society International Print Exhibition (UK), and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, USA.
My solo exhibitions include Open Your Mind - Tread Softly, held at the Bayside Arts & Cultural Centre, Melbourne, in 2015 and The Grandfather Paradox, at the Queensland Centre for Photography and the C3 Gallery, Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne both in 2009.
I was the founder and director of the Obscurity Pictures Gallery Space in Melbourne, Australia and founded The Plastic Photo Show, an annual open entry photography exhibition for plastic lens and toy cameras, and authored The Plastic Photo Show – The Book a book celebrating the artists who had participated. I have also been a guest lecturer multiple times at universities around Melbourne, speaking about my scanner cameras and my practice as an artist. More recently, I have completed a book, Strange Loop, based on my most recent body of work created at an artist residency in Iceland in 2016.
I currently live and work in London, UK and Melbourne, Australia.
