About

 

Making always feels like a natural dialogue between my body and the material; I work with materials that move, that are supple and that have the ability to be physically transformed with my hands - we move together. This way of working reflects my interest in shifting boundaries and fluid forms that resist definition and that are often ‘between’ forms.

My current series of work looks at our relationship with nature, the interconnection and lack of definition; how we consume back into our bodies what we inflict. I’m working on a series of papier-mâché and ceramic sculptures and installations and performance with fabric and objects.
