Welcome.

I am a creative director, producer, curator and artist.

I activate spaces, organisations and brands through the generation of creative public platforms.

My practice inspires conversations through creative collaborations of art and events.

I began my career in advertising and went on to establish an event company in 2000, Peak Events where I consulted across the arts, government and corporate sectors. The arts took a central focus for me after I took a chance and followed my passion founding Art for a Cause in 2005. AFAC was a visual arts program that connected artists with social cause in corporate foyer space. I continued along this path and went on to complete a Masters of Art, Art in Public Space in 2011.

I currently create and consult using the mix of my arts, event and marketing experience and recently founded the threeOclock collective and gallery. threeOclock is a visual arts program that works with emerging and established Australian artists to explore critical social and environmental issues.

Across many of my projects I work in close collaboration with RMIT University, developing research projects in association with C.A.S.T, the Centre for Art, Society and Transformation.

In my down time, my balance comes from throwing on a backpack, a load of camera gear and escaping to a wild landscape. I am usually accompanied by my beautiful, overachieving but humble husband, Hugh and his guitar. You can see my escapes on Instagram and on VSCO. I have two beautiful children that put up with a crazy amount of lounge dancing in our little Melbourne home!
