    Biography

    My work as an artist internationally is focused on site specific Public Artwork, responding to particular physical, cultural and emotional landscapes. It explores the relationship between people, places, ideas and aspirations. I also develop process-based Artist Residency projects in Schools, Universities and Organizations, exploring individual and group development through sculptural activities, resulting in both temporary and permanent artwork. My practice includes Printmaking, Installation and Live Art.
