Born in Gippsland, Victoria of Aboriginal and Irish descent.  I worked in graphic arts, fashion design and as an art tutor before moving to Canberra in 1997. I completed my under graduate studies at the ANU, Canberra School of Art in 2001. I have exhibited my work in solo and group exhibitions in the ACT, VIC, and NSW.  I have works held in private and public collections in Australia, the UK, New York and parts of Europe.
