Sydney, Australia
b. 1989

More than anything else, I'm drawn to landforms. I think of my creative work as research, investigating a sense of place through environmental histories and the physical landscape. My formal training is in the science of geomorphology, and much of my creative work plays off tension (and attenuation) between the head and the heart in the experiencing of landscapes. I work primarily in sculptural installation and photography.

I also collaborate with my sister, Anna, on Salt Country.

Always happy to chat: or instagram.
