Biography

I am intrigued by the contemporary concept of 'discovery.' The seeming notion that things almost do not exist before a white man has set eye on it. My large water and ink etched silhouette references 'Two Kangaroos in Landscape', a painting done in 1819 by John Lewin, the first professional artist of the colony of New South Wales. Nestled within the figure I have created drawings that take inspiration from the artworks created through the European eyes of the early artists who visited Australia.

Two kangaroos in landscape.Lewin, J W. (John William), 1770-1819.
