Brisbane-based multi-artist: – Visual Artist, Playwright, Director, Community Filmmaker.
Teone has published in Paris, Austria, Italy and in Australia on inter-disciplinary relations between creativity and constructions of identity, experimental methods in film and theatre, collaborative creative discourse and art as social action. These interests have emerged from her role as a filmmaker working in partnership with culturally diverse communities. Exploring practice-led studio methods and approaches used in creative community development, her research describes how problem-solving strategies and internal resources that she names collectively as Adaptivism have shaped her studio methods.

Teone’s professional background arises from various creative fields, including professional music, theatre, ABC TV, advertising and graphic design. Receiving the Griffith Award for Academic Excellence in 2006 & 2007, Teone frequently works in partnership with talented composer and music producer Steve Reinthal. In addition to video as art media, Teone has produced an extensive collection of paintings and sculptures, many of which include commissioned works in private collections in Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A., China, Holland, Germany and PNG.

Teone has twice received professional development grants from Arts Queensland to research and produce BELONGINGS (a multi-disciplinary visual arts project raising stories about identity and heritage/2005) and GOSSAMER ROADS – documenting the Salaam Project, profiling the rich traditions of Muslim women artists living in Brisbane, 2008. Teone was awarded the Access Arts SAAFE artist’s grant in 2011.
