About

I Heart Gallery

Making is my passion. It gives me purpose, and a reason to exist.

I've always been a maker. As a child I wrote and illustrated my own stories and made little books out of them. My grandmother gifted me with my very first camera when I was still a child, and when my father gifted my second as a teen, I developed the passion for photography that consumes me to this day. I collect vintage cameras and shoot film, instant film and digital. I love exploring alternative and vintage processes like cyanotypes, photograms, polaroid transfers, thermal receipt prints, double exposures and infrared photography. I studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photomedia at Sydney College of the Arts and have been exhibited and published both at home and abroad.

Crafting came after art, but that too soon became a passion. I love jewellery making, stitchery, custom printing...and it seems like every day I come across something new I'd love to try!

The one constant thread weaving throughout the creative fabric of my life has been collecting. I love to hunt for treasures! When I'm not wedged firmly behind a lens (or three), you can find me trawling through thrift shops seeking treasures to rescue, upcycle or pass on to you. Some things I collect are: cameras, typewriters, LPs, books, stitches, paintings, vintage toys, paper dolls, metal trays, tea sets, tchotchkes, kitsch, costumes, hats, shoes, art/craft supplies. I'm not a hoarder, I'm 1/8th dragon.

I Heart Gallery used to be a little brick and mortar store in Newtown, in Inner West Sydney. It was a co-op shop and arts hub, where I held creative events such as pop up markets, pop up cinemas and light graffiti projection exhibitions. Then I opened a pop up shop in Rowen's Arcade in Ulladulla! Unfortunately both shops closed due to illness, and I'm currently working mostly from bed! Hopefully I will be a brick and mortar store again one day, but for now I am happy to be working my way back to health through online selling and occasional markets.

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."

- Robert Frost
