My mission is to activate the imagination of the everyday human. My vision is to challenge the perceptions of art-making and production, animate non-traditional spaces, merge fact with fiction, share deeply human emotion through symbolic narrative and connect with residents of Tasmania and beyond.
Internally and externally to the performance setting, I focus on themes of identity through a feminist lens utilising body, architecture and site. I experiment with styles of performance and visual art-making methods with improvisation, visual art, puppetry and dance. Manipulating - and manipulated by - the object, puppet or self, I develop characters, alter-ego's, costume and sculptures, devising and coordinating solo and collaborative works. .
I have worked broadly across the Tasmanian arts sector, nationally and internationally, as artist, actor, performer and puppeteer, creating and contributing to independent, experimental and commercial works and initiatives.
I seek to investigate the individual disciplines of fine art, visual theatre, puppetry and performance, towards developing methods of blending or hybridisation.
My home is Tasmania, the southern-most part of Australia.
