Monash Art Design & Architecture

I am passionate about examining colour and pattern, and have done this through working with different materials such as felt-tip pen, acrylic paint, watercolour, gouache, collage and fineliner on paper, and more recently, working with found natural materials and thread, fabric and clay. I have become quite interested in appropriating and performing interventions on found natural materials such as rocks, branches and logs, attempting to “paint” on these natural sculptures with wool, thread and other man-made materials such as polymer clay and porcelain. I am currently trying to create new worlds through installation, tying in found and made sculptural elements and projecting my own images onto large scale drawings. I have developed a strong interest in introducing craft materials into to a fine-art context.
