About me.

Creative expression and the mystery of the psyche/soul and how it calls us in our lives, have been long-time passions of mine. And so too has a fascination with the play between the body and mind and how the innate intelligence within our bodies can often know things before our logical mind. The neuroscientist and neuro biologist Antonio Damasio proved that. Our body knowing is often an untapped source of guidance.  

 

Soul calls us to deeper and  living. Creativity offers avenues to not only enjoy and appreciate the surface and form of things, but to go deeper. Imagination and science each offer lights for the way. I believe heart and head working together is the great conjunction we and our age needs, and I would love to help you in your life and process through creative means. 

Education

COFA, UNSW

2012  Masters of Fine Arts,  High  Distinction.

​In my Masters of Fine Arts I researched how physical conditions can at times be being healed through talking therapy, exploring this phenomena through traditional and digital media; moving and still imagery. Traditional media elements were oil paintings on canvas. Moving image work included two shorts - one surreal and the other, a documentary format featuring animation and impressionistic imagery to bring memories to life, plus interview and historical footage. This research informs my understanding of the benefit of deep communication, pointing to where healing art practices can also be of benefit to individuals.
