My work represents an ongoing examination of death and personal loss. In which, I investigate lamentation as a necessary yet optimistic viewpoint that suggests psychological shifts, creating both an awareness of our limitations, and our connection to each other and to a greater whole. I make performative photographs, using myself, my daughter, my niece, or sisters, often wearing clothes of dead loved ones.
I hold a PhD at Monash University, using Photography as an Analogy in the Experience of Death and Mourning, and have taken up residencies in Alice Springs and Mauritania. I received two Highly Commended in the prestigious Olive Cotton Award and have been a finalist in many major art prizes in Australia and abroad. My work is held in public and private collections both in Australia, the UK and the USA.
