What kind of art have you made in the past?

I have always interpreted encounters of everyday life and gives them a narrative. The surface is always a large consideration in her process inviting the viewer to engage closely with her work.

Painting, sculpture photography are all mediums I have always been drawn to.

I recently exhibited my work in the Police Point Artist in Residence Program.

What are you looking forward to?

Experimenting with new ideas and mediums
Arty conversations

Do you have any comments or thoughts about your AAV program?

My mentor is amazing and keeps me on track with my art practice. Also the connection and friendships that are made [are awesome]. I now see myself as a professional artist as my confidence has grown enormously.

There are lots of opportunities that I would not have had or known about. My mentor Andrea keeps me motivated and excited about art.
