"I am a creator. When I let go of what I know amazing things take shape."

I love to experiment and see what happens. My art is all about the journey and the process. Exposing myself to new experiences and taking imagination further.

Bio

I began my art career with an Honour degree from the School of Art, Australian National University. But from then on, my career has taken an unorthodox route that led me to create the most expressive and compelling artworks through the unpredictability of the process and the journey.

The turning point of my art career started with a collaboration with a philanthropist that led me to activating his multi-level carpark in Canberra that later became my studio. From there, I created my largest format artworks including my 12m luminous Voyage artwork. This unusual setting allowed me to launch a variety of gorilla art installations that attracted the media and brought attention to public art discourse in the region.

My bold art interventions caught the attention of the founders of VIVID international light festival and led to a private sponsored residency to their headquarters and then an invitation to one of Europe’s most famous art fairs, ‘Positions’ in Berlin, Germany as a VIP artist representing Australia. 

Currently, during the COVID 19 I have setup my home studio which is now my creative headquarters. In addition, these new setups have kick-started collaborations with musicians, designers, international companies and various thought leaders across industries to transform public and private spaces into the inspirational environments of the future.
