Justine.jpg

Justine was born eternally optimistic on the day that Stevie Wonder released ‘You are the Sunshine of my Life’.  Her formative years were spent in Australia between the arid outback and urbane Sydney, with a heritage drawn from a British convict and German aristocracy.  Now, San Francisco has proven to be a good place to hone her adult identity where she works as a Project Manager with the San Francisco Arts Commission's Public Art Program, and an independent curator with ‘Out of the Box Projects’.  Current curatorial forays in the public realm include: The Peephole Cinema, a dime-sized peephole on the exterior of her Victorian cottage in San Francisco through which the public can watch short films 24 hrs a day. Recent projects in a collaboration with Seattle based artist, Susan Robb on an unscripted work of land art 'Wild Times', which will cultivate and share the wild terrain that resides in us all.  Prjects further afield include; Design Renegade in Hong Kong, The DC Commission on Arts and the Humanities’ The 5x5 Project, and Sydney’s Art & About.  Justine is inspired by unmapped landscapes, offbeat spaces, and bold statements. For her life is a journey, made sensical and non-sensical, through contemporary art.
