I am a multidisciplinary artist creating anthropomorphic (human-esque) taxidermy using authentic relics, working predominantly with sculpture, textiles and millinery.
I gather inspiration from mythology, folklore, archetypes and mysticism and explore history, culture and fashion.
I aim to create pieces that are macabre yet also delightful, which emit an aesthetic of familiarity, awe and a veneration of the dead.
All animal remains used in my work are sourced ethically and conscientiously and are used with reverence.
My work aims to aid the balance of the fragile native ecosystem and help restore and sustain Australia’s unique flora and fauna, which I cherish.
I acknowledge and deeply respect the traditional custodians of the land I live and work on, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. I pay respect to all Indigenous cultures, their elders past and present, across the world. This always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
My work resides in personal collections and on permanent display in museums in many corners of the world.
