Artist Bio 

I am an artist with lives in coastal South West Victoria. I paint in acyclic paint on linen. I work in fine liner on paper. I partner with my dad to make sculptures. I do not believe having a disability is a barrier for creating great work. I am proud of my achievements as an artist some of these include: exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery and my work has been reproduced on trams in both Melbourne and Adelaide.

Artist Statement

This work is titled ‘Life goes on’ it is about hopes during and post COVID. It is also about living in Victoria. This painting is of a wallaby, wallabies are my heroes because they overcome adversity and survive.
