I love creating visual stories. I am fascinated by myths that demonise difference. I create worlds full of beautiful, hybrid monstrosities that seduce, beguile and disturb. I work in distorted realities, combining digitally manipulated, hyper-real photographs of under-represented native forests and swamps, with the audio of human consumption and uncanny, suggestive motion design to create immersive, compulsive, kairological Sisyphean cycles to celebrate diversity. These artworks are a playful exploration of dominant non-indigenous cinematic myths which cast the Australian landscape as villain such as 'Picnic at Hanging Rock' (Weir, 1979). I grew up in Kaniva, Victoria and now live in Logan, Queensland and lecture in Video Production and Graphic Design at CQUni in Brisbane.
