He holds an undergraduate degree from the ANU School of Art & Design and a Master of Fine Arts (Sculpture) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Sustainable Creative Careers:

The art world can be a confusing and difficult space to navigate, especially when keeping pace with changing trends, expectations and technology. Throughout 2019 / 2020 the ANU School of Art & Design will be running a series of events for recent graduates, emerging artists, mid-career artists and for anyone who would like to get a better understanding of what skills are needed to gain a place in the contemporary art world.

Upcoming events in the Sustainable Creative Careers series in 2019:

Getting your art career started (or re-booted!) - August 2019

Balance your Creative Life - September 2019


Sustainable Creative Careers is supported by artsACT.
