Our Suffering

14 March 2024

My heart hurts. My body feels heavy. I don’t know what to do, sometimes, with the fear, grief and horror of living in a time like this. In recent months, I’ve seen more footage and photos of dead and starving children in Gaza than I ever needed to see. I’ve seen photos of children so […]

Vision in Red

23 October 2023

Vision in Red, acrylic on linen. NFS. I wrote some words about the story of this piece because a lovely friend recently suggested that I should share the thinking behind my art. It feels really vulnerable to share this stuff online, I don’t want anyone to think I’m trying to position myself as an expert […]

Dead Water

19 December 2022

In my childhood, I was fascinated by the underwater world. Ponds, streams, rivers, lakes and oceans, I was obsessed with catching glimpses of fish, snails, crustaceans, cephalopods, plants, coral and on and on… an abundance of lifeforms beyond imagining. It amazed and enchanted me to know that there were so many hidden worlds on our […]

Oh Yuck, It’s Me

14 September 2022

It’s actually happening, I’m finally going to do my first ever solo show! “Oh Yuck, It’s Me”, a show about finding the will to live even while the world crumbles and burns around you, is debuting at one of my favourite venues, The Butterfly Club as part of The Melbourne Fringe Festival! Though I’m absolutely […]

Some Sort of Softness.

27 February 2022

(I’ve felt so blocked for the last few years which is unusual for me. My head feels foggy, the executive dysfunction is real but I’m going to push past it because I desperately want to get back to a place where I can express myself more freely. I’m just going to… write and see what […]

My Children

19 November 2021

Another baby born. Another announcement on Facebook. Hundreds of heart reacts and those “congratulations” comments that Facebook animates with confetti. An algorithmic winner. And I want to celebrate. I want to feel joy in this most fundamentally beautiful and important part of being a human animal but when I see photos of their most precious, […]

A Dream of Melting Ice

19 November 2021

I just had a dream that I woke up from calling out and crying. My loves and I were walking along a landscape of ice but the air was hot and yellow and the ice was melting into lukewarm puddles of freshwater. Some parts were breaking apart suddenly and violently as massive ocean waves exploded […]

Future Dreaming

10 August 2021

Last night, after reading about the IPCC report on the climate crisis, my heart was racing and I felt sick and dizzy with fear. Rather than become paralysed, I felt I needed to do something so I painted myself with shaking hands and then I wrote this. I’m not sure what it is exactly but […]

28 April 2021

You think you’ve escaped me?  You think you’re safe? Can’t you hear me? I’m everywhere, on the edges of everything. Howling and haunting and laughing and moaning. I know who you are and I know where you live. Your home is inside me you arrogant little ape. You’re killing my children, slaying your siblings, mindlessly […]

A Letter to My Niece

10 April 2021

(I wrote this in September 2020 but at the time it felt too emotional and raw to post. I edited it a little today so the sense of time in it is a bit funny but the essence and emotions are still very much present. I am trying to find ways to talk openly about […]
