Writer Statement

My background is as a biomechanical sculpture artist. On many occasions people visiting galleries would say my work made them think of movies.

In 2012 a talent rep for Disney pointed out that she felt my work was right for film. My first screenplay Transcarlet is a 2016 finalist with Cannes Screenplay and has been a semi-finalist with Screencraft in 2015 and 2016. Most recently it won best feature screenplay at Fantastic Planet, Sydney.
