site specific ephemeral sculpture

Resume

As a Site Specific artist I work directly in the landscape, using found local natural materials and allow the stories and characteristics of a place to directly inform the work. My work aims to reveal the often unseen and I try to follow my intuition to genuinely collaborate with the landscape.
Bio.

During the last 17 years my art interventions in the landscape and gallery context have been shown locally, nationally and internationally. I have been involved in many outdoor exhibitions including winning the Helen Lempriere Sculpture Scholarship for Emerging Artist 2014 at Sculpture By the Sea Bondi, jointly winning WA Sculptor Scholarship at Sculpture By the Sea (SBTS) Cottesloe 2014 and Andrea Stretton invitation at SBTS 2012. I have exhibited at SBTS Bondi, Byron Bay Sculpture Biennial 2010, the Southern Forest Sculpture Trail Northcliffe, Floating Lands Queensland and ‘This is Not What you Call Sculpture’, Glasgow with a BA (Fine Arts) and BA Hons in Sustainable Development/Social Ecology including study at the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland.
