“It was profound to me, that life could be improved by such small increments and simple measures. It was sobering too, that so many other women might never consider the notion of change, might never be encouraged to.” The Normalisation of Awful was an essay I wrote in 2017 for the wonderful Overland Literary Journal.

…Together Alive at the Same Point in Time. “my attempt at working through some of the big things I’m processing around my working life at the moment – the things I’ve done and the things I’d like to do, how to get from here to there, and how to work around or through everything else along […]

“The accessibility and flexibility of printmaking Salas demonstrates in her work is deeply appealing. After all, these are traits that can be easily forgotten in certain tracts of the field. For the painter, print processes provide discipline and an order of operation–all welcome boundaries to push within. At every point, Salas’ careful and calculated image […]

Artist, performer and writer Samuel Townsend is a longtime friend and collaborator who seems to excel at whatever they put their mind to and creative energies toward. Photography has been core to Samuel’s artistic practice for many years, and it meant a lot to me to be asked to write for this latest body of […]

I’ve got two very different events coming up – but each as interesting and relevant to my preocupations as the other. Firstly, Saturday August 25th I’ve been invited by the Molonglo Group to speak on art, gentrification and development (a recurring theme for me lately).

August 26th Millennials Strike Back – panel for the Griffith […]

I’ve been coordinating Girls Rock! Canberra (GR!C) for the past few months, and talking about the program with founder and director Chiara Grassia since the start of the year (or the end of last year, it’s fuzzy now). The 2017 session wrapped yesterday – a showcase gig after a full and very busy week of […]

After a great many months in progress I can now share the new piece I’ve written for Griffith Review, for their current edition ‘Millennials Strike Back’ – Navigating Life In Art. It’s my attempt at working through some of the big things I’m processing around my working life at the moment – the things I’ve done and the […]

Alison Alder phoned me out of the blue last winter, and asked if I’d write a profile on her practice for UK-based magazine Printmaking Today. The fact that of all the writers in the world she’d called me is completely telling of her generous approach to creative collaboration, and hell, probably even life in general. […]

As 2017 began the year ahead seemed like a single mass, dense and empty. It was like looking into the sky or deep, deep water – distances perhaps close or far, impossible to judge, impossible to know how to feel, to act. I feel so tiny, and so average, at this point of time. Any […]
