About Me

Originally from Bendigo, I have always had a keen interest in the arts. One of my earliest memories is stealing my Mum's printer paper so I could draw!  All the way through primary and secondary school I excelled in the arts scene, frequently being a part of school exhibition events, and even had my works purchased for my school's permanent collections. During this time I I fell in love with the process of creating folios. I always marvel at how many different outcomes can come from one creative stimulus!
I completed my Bachelor of Arts (Drama and Visual Arts) and Bachelor of Education at Deakin University in Burwood in 2020, and my interest in contemporary art and performance has only grown.
