Born in Melbourne, live in Melbourne but grew up in Noorat, country Victoria

I LIKE TO WORK…

Whenever I can, but late nights are my preference.

I DECIDED TO BECOME AN ARTIST WHEN...

Growing up I always wanted to be an artist, but as a young adult I thought it was too hard and unlikely. I’ve never stopped making things and it’s slowly fallen into place without ever having to make a conscious decision about it. I’m indecisive but I’ve been very lucky!

IF FOR SOME (HORRIBLE) REASON I COULDN’T BE AN ARTIST/DO MY ART, I WOULDN’T MIND BEING…

A Surgeon - I’d love all the intricate work stitching things together - would just need to overcome my phobia of all things medical.
