My practice is primarily sculptural and is an investigation into material and the process of making. I create performances that are often site specific and durational in their nature.

My practice is primarily sculptural and is an investigation into material. I incorporate processes that combine the creating of formal objects with the performative qualities involved in making. I test, play and experiment with materials whilst also investigating the historical and cultural associations certain materials or objects, that I am using may have in response to the environment I am in. What becomes evident is the underlying potential disruption of the familiar within the new work
