I have always loved art, history and design, and ever since I can remember wanted a career where I could combine these interests and pursue my passion for heritage buildings. In fact my year 12 yearbook says ‘In 10 years’ time I will be restoring buildings in the EU or OZ’!With a family based mostly in Europe I was heavily influenced by the beauty and intrigue of European history and architecture. I completed an Undergraduate and Masters in Architecture, then specialised in heritage with a Masters of Heritage Conservation.I recently started a PhD allowing me to explore the theoretical side of architecture, heritage, and history. I have worked on an array of projects, frequently excited as I discover something intriguing at every place, helping piece together the history which informs our lives.
FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT’S ‘FALLINGWATER’
In my hands is a 1935 coloured rendering by Frank Lloyd Wright of ‘Fallingwater’ in Pennsylvania. I studied ‘Fallingwater’ in high school art which inspired me to study Architecture. I visited the house in 2019, at which time it was recently listed onto the World Heritage List.
