A new media artist focussing on the moving image and the adaption of cinematic devices to explore the Australian Landscape and time, she holds a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of New South Wales. Welch has also studied at the Australian National University in Canberra (Bachelor of Visual Arts (Printmaking), Honours) and has also lived and practised in the United Kingdom.
