ARTIST STATEMENT
“I have always had a strong affinity with feathers. As long as I can remember I have always collected and have been attracted to them. The feathers are precious and as individual as the last one I have found, no two are the same. Feathers in my artwork have always symbolised connection to nature, connection to land, giving a place and a time. They for me are a replacement of ancestral Indigenous history that is unknown and lost, and is a tangible piece of cultural information.  My emu feather baskets also contain other local feathers which have been interwoven into each other, along with seeds, stones and fur. I have found them soul defining to create, and the practice is rapidly evolving into other feathery works.”
