Artist, Curator, Jeweller
I grew up on a small island in Northwest USA, and now create art in the beautiful town of Denmark, Western Australia. I am deeply inspired by the contrasting landscapes of my two homes - one ancient and arid, and the other young and verdant.
My previous career in Human Rights took me to five continents and included a focus on international justice, gender equality, and First Nations’ rights, and these experiences continue to influence my artistic creations.
I work primarily work in oils and acrylics on canvas, and love the way in which the rich texture and colour of these media remind us to see the beauty in everyday life.
As a curator, I am drawn to projects that both engage a broad section of the community and explore questions of how we construct our identity within an ever-evolving global context.
