the project

I am an artist, printmaker and conservationist mostly utilising pencil and paper on location to investigate relationships between plant life and landscape. My work seeks to understand landscape as plantscape, realising the integral role that the evolution and coexistence of plants play, within Australia’s extraordinary and beautiful wild terrain.

Micro/macro printmaking champions the importance of the complexity of interconnected intricate elements and details within a habitat, sustaining reliant species living amongst an ecosystem. Silkscreen printing allows both a build up of layers and diversity in size and surface.

Walking along tracks within Australia’s unique National Parks brings circumstance to seek a deeper connection to country en route the shared path, conversation, footsteps, artmaking, and the pleasure of remembering shared experience. The artwork has been an exercise in immediacy; to capture the thoughts of a moment, in an immersive landscape.
