I am a visual artist based in Melbourne, Australia.

I like to create photographs, videos and public installations that transform the appearance of hidden or confronting spaces. My practice stems from a fascination with the systems of social value: what we are drawn to look at, or compelled to look away from; what we celebrate and what we avoid. By using decorative aesthetics to highlight these spaces, I hope to invite a greater connection with realities that are often concealed or overlooked.
