I am a poet and visual artist living in regional Australia. My first book of poetry, The Myrrh-Bearers, was published in 2015 by Puncher and Wattmann. My most recent book, The Lumen Seed, photographs, poems and commentaries, was published by Daylight Books in January 2017. Currently I am working on an illustrated verse novel for publication in 2019. Since 2011, I have spent part of each year living and working with remote Warlpiri people in the Tanami desert. With the help of Warlpiri friends I have begun tracing my own Aboriginal ancestry–still very much a work in progress. My writing often explores themes of displacement and identity loss, as well as the destruction of sacred land by commercial and military interests. Recently I have been making Lumen Prints in an effort to understand the things Warlpiri women have been telling me about the intelligence of country and the intelligence of light.
