In 2011 I received a Bachelor of Design in Textiles from The University of NewSouth Sales. In 2013 I studied at The Sturt School for Wood and graduated with a Certificate IV in Furniture Design and Technology.
Since then I have been producing works in both timber and textiles. I have been involved in numerous group exhibitions as well as two recent solo shows one at Craft Victoria in Melbourne and the other at The Australian Design Centre in Sydney. I also work as a woodworking teacher at two vocational schools in Melbourne.
Throughout my career as a furniture maker, I have been exploring the concept of functional sculpture, where a functional object can also be categorized as a
work of art. More recently my textile and timber practices have both been evolving into platforms to discuss issues of sustainability, consumerism, gender identity and the human condition.
