A Maree

Creative Explorer

Contemporary Gypsy

Conceptual Artist


I would best be described as a passionate, interdisciplinary and conceptual artist who connects aesthetic creativity and narratives about social and environmental themes. I view contemporary art as a form of compassionate communication achieved by means of a plurality of media and conversation across disciplines.

Creativity has always been something I have gravitated towards and personally nurtured. I consider creativity in the arts as the ability to use knowledge and imagination to develop an original work. My objective as an artist is to foster connections between art and the community through the celebration of socially minded creativity and research.
