I am an artist and poet with lived experience of Mental Illness working on Gadigal Country. I have been working with words since 2012. I received the Australia Council for the Arts Inaugural Disability Mentorship (2020) with the purpose of working with Mentors in the publishing world. Through this, a book anthology of words and paintings was later published by Apothecary Archive as PAST WENTS (2022). I have performed various writings in collaboration with performers, setting my words to music in various formats. Another book I have contributed to is Admissions (Upswell, 2022, edited by Stavanger, Chowdhury & Awad).
