When I am making art I think about the global economy, privilege, desire, my own complicity in the current social system, sincerity, authenticity, optimism and change. My artworks emerge from personal experiences and my hopes for the future. I work mainly with photography, text, painting and objects.  

I was born in Australia and have lived in Hong Kong since 1993. I have a number of formal qualifications including an MFA from RMIT University and a BA Communication from University of Technology Sydney.

I have recently completed residencies at the School of Visual Arts in New York (2020) and the Royal College of Art, London (2021).

I am also a member of the I Found U Collective, an international group of interdisciplinary artists dedicated to discourse and collaboration on environmental, sociological and economic concerns.
