I am passionate about making experiences with art accessible to all through curating and managing local arts organizations. I promote work by local contemporary artists through curating exhibitions. I promote work by Aboriginal Australian artists in my scholarly writing and share stories in everyday conversation about artists' impact on local culture and national civil and land rights. I am interested in the way art expresses humanity and can create agency at all levels of society.

 

My path through art history is fueled by a passion for the things people make with their hands. My vocation as a welder combines the handmade with the industrial. In research and production, I follow the human drive to alter materials, and celebrate how and why materials are changed.
