Born Rabaul Papua New Guinea; the artist now resides in Brisbane Australia.
Her family is from the remote province of Manus Island as well as Guam near the Philippine Sea.
Works on paper, particularly printmaking is her focus with linocuts, etchings & screenprints that examine consciousness, myths & the spaces between. She is interested in investigating the peripheries between dream, fantasy and memory and how this interacts with our conscious experience and the inherent conflict between illusion and reality, ethereality and permanence.
Utilising physical mark making along with the layering process of printmaking as well as strong line & pattern, she works predominantly with linocuts & etching to interpret a landscape that floats with strange encounters.
Collage has also featured in a process of ongoing exploration of her identity; focused on the themes of gender, ethnicity, the importance of place that informs prints in her practice.
She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art majoring in printmaking with Queensland College of Art, Griffith University, is a qualifed Secondary Art Teacher & has been a tutor as well as workshop & membership co-ordinator for Impress Printmakers Studio (the only open access studio) in Brisbane Australia. Her work has been exhibited nationally & abroad.
