I am an Australian-American artist living and working in Washington, DC. My work explores the relationship between the organic and the synthetic through the deconstruction and abstraction of the world around us, often focusing on social, political and cultural issues. My philosophy concerns the impermanence of things - how they grow, evolve and devolve - by uncovering what is unseen.
My technique is varied and diverse, depending on the project. My process over the last 20 years shows an obsession with layers - layers of opacity and transparency, layers of textures, layers of meaning. My ambition is to distill truth from evolving hidden meanings.
My work has been exhibited throughout America and Australia. I keep a studio just outside of Washington DC.
After gaining my PhD from Brown University, I have been working in the interdisciplinary fields of museum studies, interactive design, user interface development, animation and user experience. I have presented at numerous conferences and taught in these areas at an undergraduate and graduate level. You can download my resume HERE.
