My Desert Home 2017
“This piece is an abstract interpretation of contemporary Kalgoorlie-Boulder. The use of patterns and symbols have been employed to depict key elements of our historically and culturally rich city. Items such as wild flora and iconic landmarks are portrayed atop a coloured backdrop reminiscent of a typical Goldfields sunset. Interpret the text as you like. #giveadamn"

Her work is strongly inspired by the place and the constantly evolving ideas of home.
