Projects

  • Everything Under The Sun Is In Tune (2018)
    Everything Under The Sun Is In Tune focuses around the artist’s interest around Tarot cards; and the artwork associated with them. While the artwork is classic, the cards are remade in a more photographic element, focusing on telling a story through the use of colours and textures. The project resulted in a deck of 56 cards, 22 of which are portraits.
  • (un)Steady (2018)
    (un)Steady is based on conversations surrounding relationships and modern dating amongst her generation. It is comprised of 11 portraits and a short film in which people discuss their opinions of the trials and tribulations of modern dating in our society, from “ghosting” to their expectations of love.
    This project describes how technology and modern influences have affected this generations view on relationships.
  • Line Stein Millinery (2016)
    The project is a collaboration with Line Stein, to form a body of work examining the structural objectivity of the hat in today’s fashion industry. It resulted in a collection of images in which both the models and the headwear became structural pieces of art. This body of work was printed as a catalogue, and was displayed in a collaborative exhibition in 2016 titled Scope.
