I am an Australian artist from Brisbane. My matrilineal family is Badtjala from K'gari (Fraser Island) and this heritage informs my work. 

My art practice records and recovers Indigenous histories which Australia seeks to deny. This practice of recovery is urgent in contemporary Australia: the patient work of tracing historical trauma and violence can open new perspectives on the reasons for Aboriginal Australians' present suffering.
