In 2020 I created a series of murals for Villa Rock, São Paulo. In 2020 I was selected to participate in the Artsource Mentorship Program 2020 and exhibited at SPRING2020 Mentoring Showcase at Artsource Open Studios, sponsored by the DLGSC and LotteryWest. My work Study 1 -Serious Man, 2019 was selected as the programme cover artwork for the Cultural Studies Association of Australasia 30th Anniversary Conference at RMIT University, Melbourne in 2022.

I have also organised fundraising exhibitions for social and environmental causes including Burma Aid at Paper Mountain in 2021 and Pheonix Bushfire Relief at the YMCA Gallery in 2020. I was interviewed by Perth ABC Radio about Burma Aid. I currently work as a Visitor Engagement Officer at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery and am a sessional tutor at the University of Western Australia. I have volunteered at the Artist-Run-Initiative Paper Mountain as marketing manager, gallery co-director and all-rounder from 2020-21.
I am passionate about visual arts culture and intends to bring greater support to the arts community in coming years.
