“I grew up in Logan city and have cultural connections to Kalkadoon and Wakka Wakka Country. I hold a Bachelor of Arts, with a Contemporary Art major, from Griffith University. I have 11 years of experience working within a state institution and was in a managerial position when I left in late 2017, and I have been working independently ever since. I am the Director of Blaklash Creative, an agency specialising in Aboriginal art and design, and also Director of Aboriginal Art Co, a not-for-profit company that promotes art through a gallery and store in Brisbane (opening in late March).”
