I am a graphic designer/visual artist who teaches Digital Art and Design in the Visual Arts Program, School of Arts and Social Sciences at Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW Australia. My research interests and current art practice deals with notions of ‘place’, personal narrative and social identity via digital imagery and installation. My work references an upbringing in the Northern Rivers of NSW area seen through experience and technologies gained elsewhere. In Sydney, I was an active partner in Redback Graphix and worked as a freelance designer and with the Antart studio. Commissions have ranged from community art projects and public awareness campaigns (Literacy, Amnesty International, Aboriginal Health, Occupational Health and Safety) to museum, music, film and theatre promotions.
