Multidisciplinary artist and proud Ngarrindjeri mi:mini living on the Fleurieu Peninsula, Summer takes creative inspiration from colour in nature and her emotional trauma of losing and finding her identity.
As a witness to the changing rivers and land, she often wonders how it was before colonization and the preindustrial/agricultural revolution?
Her practice aims to question the history of the Australian environment, is it recovering, evolving, or vanishing?
As a multidisciplinary artist, Summer uses natural materials vs industrial waste, combining totemic symbolism, contemporary methods vs cultural tradition, whilst exploring and questioning sustainable industries, by-products, consumerism, and environmental preservation.
Summer uses ethically sourced bio waste, reclaimed materials and mixed media.
