Stephanie joined the Access Arts Management Committee in 2016. As a Quandamooka person from North Stradbroke Island, she has a particular interest in building and bringing further awareness to intellectual property rights, protection and ongoing benefits for Indigenous artists and their artistic expressions.
After graduating from Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Laws and Justice in 2011, Stephanie went on to take up a post at McCullough Robertson Lawyers, Brisbane. For the last three years, she has been assisting a variety of clients, including not for profit organisations, with their intellectual property and commercial needs. She has also been involved in and presented at a number of NAIDOC events.
Within Stephanie’s family and community, a range of artists from different levels have been able to develop and showcase their skills to the community more broadly, which she believes is an ongoing demonstration and expression of their culture. She hopes her role at Access Arts will enable her to contribute to this demonstration, not only within the Indigenous community, but also within the broader artistic arena.
