WOH Triptich

I am a visual storyteller who utilises multidisciplinary practices such as stencilling, illustration,mark making, painting and sculpture to deliver placemaking, beautification and site specific initiatives. I have a focus on narratives which explore, question and celebrate cultural diversity within contemporary society, including a preference on conceptual processes, research and emotive feminine connotations. My artwork is subject dependent with an emphasis on multilayered and repettitve components of colour, decorative line and bold shape.

The aesthetics of my work is depicted through portraiture and figurative forms reflecting environmental, cultural and place based characteristics, including an affinity towards superstitious and ritualistic practices. Additionally my arts practice is driven by the ability to create a dialogue between the artwork and audience, where community engagement and participation is a focal component of my arts development process.

On a personal level, I am from a migrant family, with my fathers family arriving in Newcastle NSW, Australia from Kos, Greece in the 1950’s to be placed in Greta Camp. Due to this I feel very passionate and driven by social justice and humanitarian issues.
