Space and impact of place is the undercurrent of Susie's work. Re-establishing connections to country, reflecting on impact of erasure of Indigenous narratives throughout Victoria and Australia, as well attempts to reconnect within this fragmentation thread through my non-fiction, reviewing and poetry writing practices. Locating the personal and reactive in artworks or practices, responding emotionally to people, experiences or surroundings, uncovering untold histories is an intentional part of this re-connection.

In her professional practice as a digital producer currently at Sydney Opera House and previously at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, she has created digital projects such as podcasts and interactive websites, expanding her thinking about the agency digital technologies afford Indigenous communities. Through her writing practice she is currently investigating ways to bring these practices together: intimacies and lyricism of poetic and written forms, how they might intersect with political implications of digital technologies.

Recent publications include un Magazine, Artlink Australia, Rabbit Poetry Journal, Runway Magazine, the anthology Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia; She was recently runner-up in the Overland Nakata Brophy Poetry Prize and a highly commended manuscript in the State Library of Queensland’s 2017 Black & Write Fellowships.
