The 23 year old international minger and spoon designer is a self-taught artist who works mainly in finger paints. At the age of 10 she completed her first project: a lunar refugee centre constructed entirely of wattle and daub. The piece, entitled ‘Mommy, my brain hurts”, won her international acclaim, though she withdrew entirely from the art scene for five years after the death of Diana, Princess of Hearts.
Her early talent was spotted by Rolf Harris and cultivated in a home for orphaned wolves. Her images seek to capture the unity in ideologies between Star Trek’s Spock and the modern musical philosopher, Enya.
"Tripp’s narratives are secretive, disturbing, and deeply magical and make me want to see the next scene or event, even if it is unsettling. Her characters and world are extremely unique and as soon as you feel you know where the story is going, there is always and unexpected twist and surprise that only Tripp’s work can deliver."
