Mirrigang Days

Last Saturday the 7th Dec 2019 I graduated from Leadership Victoria’s LGBTIQ leadership program with 29 other amazing people. On the same day I was awarded the 2-D metro tunnel award in the Koorie Art Show for my new art book Mirrigang days. I so humbled and excited to be acknowledged by the Koorie art Community here in Victoria. To top it all off a short documentary about me and my art called insideOUT premiered on NITV on Tuesday the 10th Dec at 7pm as part of the series Our Stories. You can now stream it on SBD on demand. It’s been a very amazing year for me and an art collaboration called Queer as Country with Tama has been turned into Christmas Card Design for the organisation Future Tense for its clients. Have a great festive season everyone. Be safe and be kind.

A Hospital project

I’m working on a project with the cancer unit at St Vincent’s Hospital here in Melbourne. It’s about having some companionship through your journey and I think our native dog, the Dingo, will be just the trick. It’s all a work in progress at the moment and I will post so finished shots towards the end of the year

Mirrigang Collection

In December 2018 as part of Hong Kong’s business of design week, I was included in a project called Recognition. The project paired Victorian Aboriginal artists with fashion designers to create a collection. I teamed up with @vincentlistudios to create the Mirrigang collection. Meaning wild dog in Ngarigu language.
