As an artist I’m fascinated by connections- the connections that people have, in particular to nature and to each other. I’m passionate about spending time outside and its positive effect on people’s wellbeing. I enjoy experimenting with ways that engage people with the natural world and find inspiration from the seasons and cycles in nature.
The materials I use are a mixture of natural materials and found objects including paper, willow, wire, textiles and everyday objects. My practice is process based – exploring themes that are linked to the people and places I work with, using the most relevant materials.
I create installations, facilitate experiences and make objects that respond to the context and love to work creatively and collaboratively to engage and inspire.
Like nature my work is constantly evolving with each project and the encounters it brings feed into future work.
