In recent times my Visual Arts practice has focused upon the discovery of the old and neglected buildings and histories of the Golden Plains and Corangamite Shires. This includes landmarks that have altered due to climate change and neglect, incorporating the landscape and changes to the land of the region. I have become interested in documenting sites that have been disused or are in threat of becoming demolished to create a visual record of these places.

I have had a sustained interest in the Visual Arts since my completion of Master of  Arts, 2011. Currently I am working within the Arts in the Ballarat region within education. I exhibit regularly both in regional galleries and artist run initiates locally and interstate and I have participated in the graduate survey exhibition Hatched, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art.



My work specifically relates to country towns and the importance of commemorating the built history of such places, especially the historic buildings.
