Catherine performs highly ritualistic, sacred performance art works  that honour the faces of the divine feminine, the earth and all our relations. As an archetypal alchemist she feels it her sacred duty to be a vessel for symbolic and mythic transmission and acts of social, environmental, political and  spiritual intention. Interactivity and intimacy is a core feature of her presentations as  artist and audience journey together into the numinous, veil between the worlds in the living movie that is  life.

Events include her performance as Beggar Woman in Beggar Woman Wails for the World of Women click link) at Embracing Spirits mixed arts event  ‘The Goddess Within’, which was a fundraiser for the Art2Healing Project art therapy/rehabilitation program to assist victims of sex trafficking. She has also performed as Grace guardian of the Grail in Grace and the Grail at Acts of Love which was a fundraiser for the St Kilda Gatehouse and organisation that also helps women who are recovering from street sex work.

She has made a site specific performance art movie Beggar Woman Walks by the Waters and recently hosted her own  original one women devised play By The Mandate of Heaven as two characters the female Boddhisattva and the male Minister from the Imperial courts of Weights and Measures to raise funds for Earth Laws Alliance  Australia’s first Rights of Nature conference. It was a play exploring our relationship with and to the natural world (Eco-mythic, spiritually oriented) and specifically reflecting on the Industrial era and nuclear technologies, taking us into some deep territories and then out the other end, to empowerment and change. This work was  made into a movie and released in 2019 (click link above).

Out of the play By the Mandate of Heaven was birthed Oma, the ancient clan mother of the north, central character for I Am (Song of The Earth) from The Call of Oma concept album was birthed. The public met Oma as part of the  I Am (Song of The Earth) launch at Ceres Brunswick on Earth day 2017.



As visual artist her works have been featured  donations for fundraisers for Spiritual Unity of the Tribes Inc the work Guardian Ancestors Say Look Hear! in 1988 as part of the sacred gatherings, and also for Friends of The Earth in support of indigenous solidarity the work Reconciliation is In Our Hands in 1997.

Other work as a visual artist has been in community arts work with children and some adults (wearing another hat).

Of late explorations of film and digital media and methods have become  incorporated into her work. As time goes on;  aspects of set design, costume making, and prop making have been explored and become necessary ‘to communicate’ the work. She dreams of one day having her own production company or at least working with a team!



One day she hopes to publish many years worth of poetry and prose and also collections of essays on various topics. Until then one can seek out her writing in her lyrics, poetry and prose featured in performance art.


Catherine’s previous arts engagements include work as a music & drama teacher and as a community artist with a focus on arts health.

‘The universe is vast and deep: we are no different in our capacity as creators; of the domain in time and space’.
