Hi, I am a fine artist practising in Bass Coast Shire, near Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia. I have variously been called a photographer, sculptor, and print maker. I work with whatever makes sense to tell the story I'm telling. I am interested in identity, culture, environment and community I work in: Printmaking: -linocuts, copperplate, woodblocks, Intaglio and Relief processes Photography: -digital and darkroom, mostly darkroom, Sculpture: -(found objects), acrylics and pastels. In my work I'm looking at identity and place, our relationship to the planet and the landscape as a metaphor for our future. I'm moved by the horrors of war, the devastation we wreck on each other and the land. I am challenged to make work about peace and beauty. I've been taking photos since I was about 10, with my dad's old Luxor fully manual 35mm. My first camera after that (age 20) was a Nikon FG20 35mm, which I still use. I began using digital cameras 12 years ago, for documentation mostly. I'm now working with a Nikon D200, acquired a Mamiya RB67 Pro S medium format monster. I began a long-term collaboration with Patrice Muttaymiles Mahoney in 2010, continuing my exploration of contemporary white identity in the context of Indigenous Australian experience. The collaboration produced it’s first outcomes in Feb - May 2011, culminating in an interactive installation -“emanate” - as part of the Creative Gippsland Festival, shown at Archie’s On The Creek, South Gippsland, in May & June 2011. In June & July 2011 I exhibited with 3 other artists in “Mindful Things” at La Trobe Regional Gallery, Morwell. I am currently completing my Honours year, and am framing my question for a Masters (Practice-Based Research) proposal for 2013 looking at the prehistory of the British Military Colonists first sent to Australia from England. I am woking on this in Artist Prints as the exploration continues!
