I am an independent artist and writer working across performance, art and poetry. My work examines the human condition, interrogating shifting identities and personal politic; the starting point of a work often arising from lived experience. My work is created through devising and improvisational processes, often employing somatic research, text, image, light and sound. I value intuitive processes and working within the unknown; often not knowing what the work is until I've created it. I value shared dialogue around work, practice, process and outcome with audience and artists.
My current enquiry investigates themes of motherhood, death and grief, engaging in live performance, written work and a range of mixed media, within solo and collaborative contexts. More recently my work has led me to exploring new forms and processes, while my lineage in performance making continues to inform the work I make, creating moving and challenging relationships in which audience can be active and present.
I live and work in a small coastal town on the Bellarine Peninsula, while raising my two sons.
