Finalist in the 2009 Black Swan Prize for portraiture.
In this self-portrait I wanted to physically describe myself as a figure in flux. Painting is a life long pursuit and I am driven by an unrelenting desire to paint, but with every step forward I am faced with new questions about who I am and how I relate to the world around me. By applying a loose layer of paint over a tight one I want to represent my uncertainty when facing the big bad world, the future and my path through it. I am a recent Curtin graduate and have had two solo exhibitions as well as appeared in several group shows. Most recently I have been short listed for the National Youth Self Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra.
