Short bio:
I am a graphic designer/visual artist who teaches Digital Art and Design in the Visual Arts Program, School of Arts and Social Sciences at Southern Cross University, Lismore. My research interests and current art practice deals with notions of ‘place’, personal narrative and social identity via digital imagery and installation. These themes are evident in my MA research project, ‘(un)folding landscape and identity’ as well as the large community art project, ‘Wilsons River Experience Walk’ in Lismore. My work references my upbringing in the Northern Rivers of NSW seen through experience and technologies gained elsewhere. In Sydney, I was an active partner in Redback Graphix, worked as a freelance designer and with the Antart studio. Commissions have ranged from community art projects and public awareness campaigns (Literacy, Amnesty International, Aboriginal Health, Occupational Health and Safety) to museum, music, film and theatre promotions.
