I am a Wiradjuri environmental artist who responds creatively within a First Nations cultural context, focusing on Wiradjuri traditions, community, and Country. I am drawn to creating contemporary fibre artworks that represent a continuum of Wiradjuri cultural artefacts, Country, language and ‘Yindayamarra’ (respect) for Mother Earth. I use recycled data and electrical cables and natural grasses, transforming these mediums into sculptural forms that juxtapose modern and traditional weaving techniques.


I have programmed and facilitated various interactive hands-on weaving and recycled art workshop for adults and children that provides the opportunity to create eco-friendly woven and sustainable art projects. I have hosted workshops for The Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women's Voices) National Summit, Canberra, Gold Coast Council, Home of The Arts (HOTA), Gold Coast and Griffith, College of Arts and Griffith University Art Gallery Brisbane, Dept of Education – various schools,Parkes Shire Council, Bathurst Regional Gallery, community galleries, events and NAIDOC celebrations.
