“I am an adventurer, with a passion for long distance walking and sailing. Through my work I aim to capture the arresting moments of beauty found by journeying through the world in this slow way. My work embodies memory, ritual and narrative, as much a journey through the psyche as through land and sea.
Formally trained in writing, drawing, painting and film, my current practice is based in all four, informed through walking and moving slowly through the landscape. I share my time between my studio in Kuring-gai Country, Sydney, and months at sea or on land.
My current project is based on our recent 1000 kilometre pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago.
