Tell us a bit about yourself and what you’ll be selling?
I’m a 24-year-old multidisciplinary artist and designer. I am both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander. My practice includes painting, illustration, sculpture, animation and graphic design. I’ll be selling a diverse range of items that reflect my practice from my newly published comic book to paintings. Hopefully, there is a little something for everyone.
How do you make the works?
I tend to jump headfirst into my work and allow creation to take form in the moment. I might do some research before I start or come back intermittently. I usually have some ambiguous theme that will drive the way it looks or just completely make it up as I go. My creation is a journey.
Why is it important to support local makers?
You can get something unique that you may not be able to buy anywhere else and your money goes back into the local community.
What’s your top gift tip this Christmas?
You should probably get onto one of my paintings 🙂
