As far back as I can remember my identity as an artist found expression, first in dance and later in design and photography, and as a child this expression served to provide an escape from a deep sense that I lived out of place. Born in Zimbabwe and now an Australian citizen, my formative years were tumultuous and marked by a clear separation from the background and values of my parents and siblings, all British born. The colours and sounds of the powerful African continent on which I was born, being uprooted to Australia before my 6th birthday, my boundless energy and creativity, and a highly inquisitive social outlook, meant the differences to my siblings and peers only grew over time.
My current work explores the importance of abstraction to contemporary understandings of human behaviour and humanity’s place in a seemingly meaninglessly vast observable universe. I use philosophical and practical frameworks drawn from the rigour of scientific investigation and discovery.
