We are a collective of artists based in Sydney, Australia, with experience in running and managing artist studio spaces. We are now collaborating to create a creative space, offering public accessible workshops, exhibitions, artist talks, and affordable studio space for artists in an amazing building close to the Sydney CBD.
Space is a resource hard to come by in the current economic climate, yet one of our greatest needs as artists is to have the space to develop our creative practices. Many in our position often have to choose between practising our craft or living beyond our means. We would like to enable artists to develop their practice at very affordable costs.
Sydney has a long history of communal art culture, from the early Australian and immigrant artists who established camps at various sites along the Sydney foreshore in the 1880s to communities such as the Yellow House in the 1950s and 1960s. Like our early counterparts, we seek a space from which to creatively articulate our experiences of living and working in Sydney, engaging with contemporary and historical issues within the community.
Intersect Arts is committed to bringing together multidisciplinary artists and makers working in or wanting to work in the creative industries. Supplying affordable studio space under one roof we are able to leverage the benefits of intersecting skill sets, networking and the mentoring that is possible under such an environment.
Intersect Arts was born when two well established studios combined forces by pooling together their collective experience running art studios in the Sydney area.

I am a Sydney based Photographer/Cinematographer. To me, it is not about capturing an image directly in front of me but to reveal a hidden image through the process itself. I enjoy manipulating and changing photographic prints through darkroom possessing and also enjoy night photography. Inspired by Sgraffito I create photographic spaces during nighttime by strategically adding light to reveal areas that other wise would be completely enveloped by darkness.
