ABOUT

I’m an Australian artist who draws influence from women’s self-portraits and representations from early modern to contemporary times. Inspiration for my work comes from questioning misogyny in the Western philosophical tradition and the canon of classical literature. I’m a reverse glass/acetate painter a technique known as verre églomisé an art form originating in the Middle Ages. I use traditional and new mediums combining them into hybrid layers to create a curious depth reflecting the very nature of my subjects.

I have studied a Bachelor of Arts encompassing philosophy and literature and an Advanced Diploma in Visual Arts.
