- About -

As a sculptural installation artist, my artistic practice is an intuitive response to everyday materials and how their materiality connects to space, architecture and memory. I am interested in objects that can be activated in multiple spheres of interpretation and making art that encompasses me but is made with my hands. Having had experience with the themes of the handmade, craft and materialism, I am particularly interested in soft sculpture, painting and collective group practices. Re-purposed objects and available materials in excess inspire my art practice and as an artist I am constantly hoarding objects and their memories.
