About

I am a proud Yorta Yorta, Gunditjmara and Barkindji man, I hold my culture strong to my heart and it gives me a voice and great sense of my identity. I look around I see empires built on aboriginal land, I cannot physically change or shift this, though I can make the most of my culture in a contemporary setting and my art projects reflect my journey.
In 2015, I was the recipient of the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award – Youth award and the Hutchinson Scholarship, through which I undertook a 12-month residency at the Victorian College of the Arts. My work has been acquired by the Koorie Heritage Trust, The National Gallery of Australia, the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, the National Gallery of Victoria and I was commissioned as a major project artist by White Night.
