I am a visual artist, cultural worker and researcher focussed on working in public space and building creative communities and places. I have founded, built and run MAPA Art + Architecture together Hugo Moline since 2015. Prior to that I was part of The Lot collective. I have managed public art and cultural projects both temporary and permanent, for clients including: City of Sydney, Westmead Hospital, Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, Parramatta City Council, Powerhouse MAAS, Urban Art Projects, Defence Housing Australia, amongst others. Working on complex collaborative public art projects I have developed effective project & time management skills and successfully led teams of contractors, fabricators, engineers and installers. In our collaborative practice, Hugo and I have undertaken residencies and produce research outcomes in Japan at Australia House for the Echigo Tsumari Art Triennial, at NIDA Art Colony in Lithuania, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, The Museum of Loss and Renewal in Italy and others. Alongside my creative practice I have twelve years of professional experience working in the visual arts and local government sector. In 2005 I graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Creative Art majoring in Arts Management and in 2008 I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the National Art School majoring in Sculpture. In my various roles as Creative Industries Project Officer at Blue Mountains City Council, Curator of Bankstown Biennale, Bankstown City Council, Cultural Development Officer at Fairfield City Council I have been responsible for producing and managing creative programmes, exhibitions and grant programs. I have also taught as sessional academic at in interdisciplinary design at the University of Technology Sydney, in architecture at the Sydney University and worked as a research co-ordinator at the University of Newcastle in the School of Humanities, Creative Industries and Social Sciences.
