About

An artist, designer and educator, I established Hatchling Studio in 2010 as a collaborative interpretation, design and public art consultancy. Based in Melbourne, my work spans interpretation of natural, cultural and technological heritage through art, exhibition, outdoor environments and digital media.

I combine knowledge of current theory and practice in communication and museum studies with the skills and sensitivity to effectively consult with communities and organisations to draw out the stories and ideas they wish to communicate.

Services include

  • Interpretation planning
  • Content development
  • Multi-form interpretation design
  • Public art and memorial design
  • Preparation of design briefs
  • Interpretation research
  • Community consultation
  • Project management

I am experienced in working with people from diverse cultures and Non-English speaking backgrounds.
