I am a visual artist living in Mpartnwe, Arrernte Country (Central Australia).
I make photographs, paintings, videos and public installations.

My work uses colour and beauty and to make society’s hidden spaces more visible. By visually transforming these spaces,

I want to unravel the value systems that repress them and invite a more holistic acceptance of realities that Western society encourages us to avoid.
