I am currently undertaking a MFA by research at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney. Previously, I graduated from the ANU School of Art in 2008 from the Printmedia and Drawing department with first class honours. I have had solo exhibitions in Canberra and Melbourne and has been involved in numerous group exhibitions. I work with print, drawing, painting, video work and installation. In 2009 I underwent a residency at Megalo Print Studios under the Emerging Artist Support Scheme, as well as winning First Prize at the M16 Drawing Prize. In 2010 I was selected as a finalist in the National Portrait Gallery’s National Youth Self Portrait Prize.

    Hi Robbie, I love the idea of the tactile drawings, transferring the drawing of a person through that person. Great, great, great!
