ARTIST BIO

With a strong interest in street documentary, my contemporary digital art practice concerns disconnection and juxtapositions in urban landscapes– especially in Australian suburbs. My work not only explores some of the social tensions that can be found in suburbia but also concurrently investigates associated psychological states and transformations. The use of heavily saturated colour and strong contrast is used to explore and accentuate such struggles.
