BIO                                                                 

(b.1977, Australia) based in London working with words and pictures.

Trained in dance in Australia and later in Europe, I began my career as a ballerina in Germany and later as a contemporary dance artist and teacher in London.

Around 2015 I began working with photography and in 2019 started to integrate writing into my practice.

Stories are central to our existence and my work is rooted in a desire to tell stories that try and seek a deeper layer in our perceptions.

The photography work has been commissioned, featured in group exhibitions and in print. Winner of the Life Framer Photography Prize in the Human Body category in 2016 and shortlisted for several other awards including in 2018 and 2021 a finalist for the Bowness Photography Prize by Monash Gallery of Art, Australia.

Working on some new projects and will update here soon X
