Limited edition prints; works on paper escapades


Posted by on | |
Born Rabaul Papua New Guinea; now resides  in Brisbane Australia. 
Her family is from the remote province of Manus Island as well as Guam near the Philippine Sea.
Completing a Bachelor of Fine Art majoring in printmaking with Queensland College of Art, Griffith University Australia in 2005, she has also been a  tutor  as well as the Education officer for Impress Printmakers Studio (the only open access studio) in Brisbane.
Works on paper, particularly printmaking is her focus with linocuts, etchings & screenprints that examine consciousness, myths & the spaces between. She is interested in investigating the peripheries between dream, fantasy and memory and how this interacts with our conscious experience and the inherent conflict between illusion and reality, ethereality and permanence.

Utilising physical mark making along with the layering process of printmaking as well as strong line & pattern she works predominantly with linocuts & etching to interpret a landscape that  floats with strange encounters. She uses myths  from PNG, poetry, and found items.
Collage has also featured in a process of ongoing exploration that informs prints in her practice.
Her work has been exhibited nationally & abroad .
