ABOUT THE ARTISTS

FERRY is an installation artist, musician, producer, and collaborator. Since leaving the corporate world of graphic and web design 3 years ago to actively pursue her craft full-time, Ferry spends her time developing her own solo works (aside from composing and playing in four bands), crafting her brand, aesthetic and skills as an artist.

Her work ranges from collaborative performances with various musicians to large-scale installations and devised works. Focusing on developing good ideas and stories regardless of the form, this creative producer hopes to develop and grow her vision to showcase sound in a whole new light as well as devise pieces to challenge and change perspectives surrounding social issues. As a teaching artist, she firmly believes in passing on knowledge, engaging the community and sharing ideas.

Thriving on collaboration as a vital process, she sees her “finished” works as a work-in-progress, opening it up to other artists who can share, use or develop upon the initial idea. This allows every work to evolve by involving other artists and disciplines, providing more opportunities for exploration and growth.

FERRY believes that art is most powerful when it is used as an educative tool and to create opportunities for others. To look beyond the forms and mediums so as to encourage curiosity, experimentation, failure and embracing the unknown.

Her personal ethos is “whatever best serves the idea”.
