I am feeling so honoured to have received the CM Michael Reichmann Project Grant 2022. I never knew people would respond so well to this body of work.

Australian Photobook Awards 2022
My book, Come and Find Me, won the Pre-press Open Category at the Australian Photobook Awards. The awards were held in Melbourne and formed part of Photo 22. This volume of images is from my onging series and was a deeply personal outpouring of trauma and grief. It was a difficult thing to share but I am so glad that I did even though I felt very vulnerable opening myself up in that way. Congratulations to all of the other winners and a big thanks to the judges and sponsors. I look forward to producing a physical book of this work soon.

More than a sum of her parts
13th Feb – 26th Feb, 2020
The historical praxis has relegated women as passive objects, most often as the subject of the art rather than the creators. This imbalance has started to be addressed with more recognition of the contribution of women artists, through written discourses and exhibitions that acknowledge their artistic merit.
