What if I were to tell to you that being a public artist extends far beyond the creation of a body of work? I believe the essence lies in PEOPLE, COMMUNITY and the cultivation of CONNECTIONS. Forming human connection, practicing active listening, engaging in meaningful conversations and approaching every engagement with an open mind form […]
Wishing you all an enjoyable and safe holiday season. ✨ This recent photo shoot at Lakelands station with the fabulous @francesandrijich was comfortable and fun, which I think shines through in the photos.
As always, closing out the year offers a quick pause and time for reflection. To think of those who are no longer with us and […]
I’m thrilled for my work Venerated to be selected as a Finalist in the @cityofgreatergeraldton Mid West Art Prize. Such a fun road trip to attend the opening on Saturday! These events provide an important opportunity for us artists to connect and chat face-to-face. It reminds me what a creative and supportive arts community we have in […]
I recently had the pleasure of being involved in Benchmark at @centralparkperth – a brilliant arts engagement project supporting local collaborative partnerships.
Over two days the awesome team at @twineideas transformed the space into a vibrant hub of free activations and chill out spaces. It was great to see so many people engaging with and enjoying the event. Thanks to […]

Free of client constraints, the dynamic mark making is intuitively expressive. Moving between mixed media paintings and sculptural forms, Tempestt resists boundaries, with the […]
It was an immense honour to be invited by the City of Karratha to be one this year’s judges in the Cossack Art Award, recognised as the most isolated acquisitive art exhibition in the world and the richest award of its kind in Australia. I’ve been a participating artist in the awards a few times, […]
I had so much fun working on this project for the Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre Trust to create a more inviting space for staff and visitors to enjoy. I seized the opportunity to paint across multiple planes, down the walls and onto the ground to create ‘Zest’. It was inspired by researching human cells, nerve endings […]
Reflecting on the making of the Erindale Road underpass with @kardy.kreations for @mainroadswesternaustralia last year.
There’s so much that goes into a project of this size, with months of designing, community workshops, documentation, inductions, material selection and more before we even get to site!
These projects not only offer opportunities for artists to meaningfully connect with local community, the results […]
The latest creation in a long line of clothing designs. Residing in the depths of my sketch book for some time, the design finally found the light of day. Now it’s my new fave.
A few years ago I decided I simply MUST have a green windcheater and couldn’t find one anywhere in Perth. This year […]
