Journal History



Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I'm an all-round artist currently based in Latrobe, Tasmania. Although young, I have a relatively extensive amount of creative experience; I've dabbled in the art forms of circus, drawing, printmaking, creative writing and stage magic, I practice photography, dance and photomanipulation as a hobby, studied theatre at university and am pursuing a career in music. I play several musical instruments, including piano, ukulele, dumbeg, tin whistles and Celtic bouzouki, I'm one third of Tasmanian inter-generational folk trio Velvet Sledgehammer, and I've just completed my first studio album and am in the process of launching it with an appropriately epic tour. I also love chocolate.

Warning: I feed trolls when I get bored! It makes me giggle.

Hello Durps! :dummy:

Long time no talk. What have you all been up to? I've had to nuke most of my inbox, as there was just so much stuff in it from three months or more of neglect, so I'm very sorry if I missed anything. Please feel free to post links to your best latest artworks in the comments and I promise I'll go and oogle over them. :deviation: In fact, we can all oogle over each other's work, in the comments; how about that? Tell me your latest bit of news too, or if you don't have any news, tell me your favourite joke.
Things have been CRAZY for me! :iconbouncingplz: I've just spent two months gigging around the Nordic countries! I had three gigs each in Sweden, Denmark and Iceland (nothing personal, Norway and Finland, that's just how stuff worked out. I promise I'll get around to you one day!), and I have made heaps of new friends, useful contacts, a new bromance or two and the decision to definitely relocate myself to Sweden permanently as soon as possible!

I am now in Edinburgh for about 11 days, performing at the Fringe. I have three gigs, two of which I performed already, and one more will be happening on Monday...if any of you reading this happen to be in Scotland at the moment, why don't you come along and introduce yourself afterwards? I'd be very happy to meet you. Tickets can be booked here:… It's going to be a good show, if I do say so myself. I will be putting everything I've got into it...

I'll leave you with this little song I wrote. If you come along, you can hear it live!

Thanks for reading!
