Everything in my life is art and cultural diversity is the centre of my practice

I was born in Chile in 1978 and moved to Australia in 2001. I have double background in fine arts and sociology and I am currently undertaking a multidisciplinary PhD in Australian studies  at The University of Melbourne.

My research examines Australian identity from a postcolonial-migrant perspective and is centred on the concept of Australia as a migrant nation. Through art I aim to challenge the notions of what it means to be Australian by using art as a tool for social change.
