ABOUT THE ARTIST
Growing up in Eden on the south coast of NSW I loved the bush and the sea. Even though I now live in Canberra, that hasn't changed and much of my art is inspired by what I find beautiful in nature. I was studying Accounting and Actuarial Studies at ANU when I decided that quality of life is more important than money and transferred to a Design Arts degree that I graduated from in 2017. A residency at The Wetlands and Woodlands trust consolidated by passion for the native environment and I am decided to go back to uni to learn more about biodiversity conservation and science communication. Sharing my passion for conservation with other artists led to a new passion for curating ongoing multidisciplinary group exhibitions which are inclusive, noncompetitive and free for artists.

This is a community exhibition by local artists who are all passionate about their love of our local biodiversity.
As the curator, my aim of the exhibition is to share the love of our natural environment via art to our community. To encourage more people to care and feel joy and connection to the precious ecosystems and species that are still here.
Precious Habitats includes a variety of mediums and materials: sculptures in steel, bronze, clay and wax. 2D work of paintings, drawings, embroidery prints and photographs. Poems, written and spoken words.
