"Upon receiving the news that my application to the 2019 Windmill Trust Scholarship was successful, I was overcome by the most ridiculous flood of happy tears. Being awarded this scholarship is an enormous affirmation of my current and future practice and gives great confidence to the world of ideas I inhabit as a critically engaged artist working across urban, regional and remote divides."

2019 WINDMILL SCHOLARSHIP
"In December 2017 I completed my practice-led PhD titled, Biting the Clouds: The Aboriginals Protection and Restriction of the Sale of Opium Act, 1897. Now it’s time for a change of pace and spending some time back on my traditional country. The landmass of K’gari1 means Paradise. With the assistance of the Windmill Trust Scholarship I am overjoyed to be going home and creating a new body of work during the Spring of 2018. After a lean six months this really feels like winning lotto."

2018 WINDMILL SCHOLARSHIP
Being the Windmill Trust Scholarship recipient for 2010 enabled me to confidently move forward with the survey show at Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery and definitely helped ensure its success. It was a great plus for advertising and gave the show some added prestige.

2010 SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT
The grant extended my practice beyond the regional by building networks. I have been asked to exhibit as part of two group shows at Katomba Cultural Centre and at the Tweed Regional Gallery, in 2016. Thanks to the Windmill grant, my work looked contemporary and professional.
