I am a Sydney-based writer and curator specialising in the use of edible materials in the visual arts. I hold a Master of Arts (Art Business) from Sotheby’s Institute of Art – London, a Bachelor of Arts (History of Art) from the University of Michigan and am currently working on a Master of Arts (Art Theory) from the University of New South Wales researching the use of edible materials in arts practice from the 1990s to the present.

I am the Gallery Manager at Brenda May Gallery, Sydney and my writing has appeared in Artlink, Ceramics Monthly, Journal of Australian Ceramics and on the websites of Curator and art:21. In addition, I contributed to the exhibition catalogues of Acquired Taste: Food and the Art of Consumption (California State University, 2011) and Slow Burn – A century of Australian women artists from a private collection (S.H. Ervin Gallery, 2010).

Selected curatorial projects include Mouthfeel (June 2015) and  Sugar, Sugar (October 2013) at Brenda May Gallery, Sydney. Mouthfeel is forthcoming exhibition of video work exploring synaesthetic responses in the viewer and  Sugar, Sugar featured contemporary art made exclusively with sugar by ten female artists.
