Before
immigrating to Australia I studied Biology, Microbiology and Theology in
Würzburg and Munich.

After
my arrival in Australia in 1986 I decided to study art and completed a
BFA and MFA at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne and later a PhD
at Monash University (2007). 

My
science background with a focus on fresh water ecology now contributes a
substantial part of the content I employ in my studio program, applying and
exploring specialist knowledge with a variety of media including painting,
sculpture, installation and photography.

The
themes I pursue in my practice have been manifold and could be characterised as
a sustained examination of the fluid boundaries between 'naturalia' and
'artificialia', biotech and nature, the real and the imagined. Particular
subjects I continue to explore are notions of hybridity in biology and ideas
relating to hypothetical or imaginary specimens.

Within
these contexts the scientific research conducted in the Great Barrier Reef zone
are of special interest to me, as are the shifting perceptions and cultural
representations of this vast and diverse marine environment.
